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.

  • Back to normal at the trap range - April 17, 2014
    By some strange luck, I shot really well last week in our trap league. But last night, I didn’t do so well. Not even close. The thing about shooting trap is that you’re bound to have good rounds once in a while. Those good nights give you hope that you’re improving. For some people, that […]
  • Cowboy O-Line Being Told To Be the Hammer, Not the Nail [AUDIO] - April 16, 2014
    The Wyoming Cowboy football team will have one more practice before Saturday’s spring game.  The major focus this spring, at least for the offensive line, is to be more physical and deliver the blows.  As offensive line coach Scott Fuchs tells the unit, “be the hammer, not the nail”.  That’s a difference in philosophy between […]
