The identity of the man whose body was found last week in the Mosquito Creek Drainage south of Wilson remains a mystery.  Teton County Undersheriff Bob Gilliam says an autopsy was performed in Idaho Falls yesterday, but conclusive identification is not anticipated until later in the week – possibly not until the end of the week.  Gilliam says the condition of the body that was found was so poor that identification will have to rely on fingerprints or possibly even DNA.  He says deputies investigated the body of the man in a secluded area Thursday after being contacted by an individual who had discovered it approximately 150 yards from the road.  He adds that the man’s head was found a short distance from the body.  Officers began an investigation that included a thorough examination of the body and the surrounding area; spending more than five hours processing the area for clues explaining his demise.
