Investigators are piecing together what is believed to have been an incident of suicide, with the male victim found alongside I-35, between Stacy and North Branch, near the #17 interchange last week. Callers reported seeing a body lying by the northbound lane of the freeway about 6 a.m. Tuesday, Aug 6. A sheriff’s spokesman said preliminary reports from the scene are that the victim appeared to have used a 12 gauge shotgun, found next to the body, to shoot himself. An abandoned van was located not far from the victim. State patrol declined to release any details pending a full investigation and official I.D. of the victim, and cause of death is being investigated by the medical examiner.
