  • An investigation was continuing into the late-night hours Wednesday after a body was found in rural Pottawatomie County.
    A federal search warrant commenced on tribal land as the FBI, along with Sac and Fox Nation tribal police and local authorities converged on an area near Hazel Dell Road and Crosslin Road, which is east of SH 18 in far northern Pottawatomie County.
    FBI Special Agent Rick Rains said the FBI was working with local authorities at that scene but he couldn't confirm that a body had been located. He also said the FBI doesn't comment on any ongoing investigation.
    But local police sources confirmed Wednesday night that a body had been located in that area, although a positive identification of the decedent hadn't yet been made.
    The state medical examiner is expected to determine identity and make a ruling on cause of death.
    No other information about the ongoing investigation was available late Wednesday night.
    Watch for updates.
