Teton County Sheriff’s Officers Investigate Apparent Homicide

Teton County Sheriff’s officers are investigating what appears to be a homicide south of Wilson in the Mosquito Creek area, and located about two miles west of Fall Creek Road.  Undersheriff Bob Gilliam says the victim is a male of an unknown age, whose body was discovered by a passer-by yesterday afternoon.  Gilliam says identification of the victim is being complicated by the poor condition of the body since the man appears to have been deceased for several days or more.  Gilliam says an autopsy is being performed on the victim and it is hoped that findings from it will shed more light on the victim’s identification and cause of death.  Until then, little more is known about the circumstances leading up to his death other than some indicators, about which Gilliam did not elaborate, leading officers to deem the death suspicious.  Sheriff Jim Whalen says the area sees this sort of crime very rarely and there really hasn’t been a case like this for about ten years.
