Victim’s Severed Head Due To “Animal Disturbance”

CrimeSceneTape

While the investigators are reluctant to reveal the suspected identity of a man whose body was discovered last week in the Mosquito Creek drainage south of Wilson, the circumstances of how he came to be there are slowly being uncovered.  Teton County Undersheriff Bob Gilliam says current information indicates the man traveled to the area from out of state with a family member for the purpose of an assisted suicide.  Gilliam says the man was suffering from advanced stages of cancer at the time of his death.  He says an autopsy performed late Monday indicated that his head was actually separated from his body by what he terms “animal disturbance” to the scene, and not in the ending of man’s life.  Gilliam says investigations continue including interviews with those believed to be the man’s family, but he emphasizes the man’s identity has not been totally confirmed as yet.  The investigation began last Thursday when an individual running his dog in the forest discovered the body which officials believe had been there for two or more weeks.
