Body Found In Eastern SD Field Identified
April 23, 2010, 10:30 AM
BADGER, SD -
Authorities say a body found in a field near the eastern South Dakota town of Badger is that of a man who went missing nearly three weeks ago.
Kingsbury County Sheriff Kevin Scotting says dental records confirmed the body is that of 45-year-old Rollie Koistinen, who had been missing since April 4.
The body was found this week by a farmer who was spreading fertilizer in a field.
Final autopsy results are pending, but Scotting says it appears Koistinen died of natural causes.
