The Chippewa County sheriff’s office says foul play is suspected in a man’s death.
The man’s body was found lying in the front yard of a home near Lake Wissota.
Chippewa County sheriff Jim Kowalcyk says someone running in the neighborhood of 83rd Avenue and 162nd Street found the body lying in the yard this morning.
The sheriff says the body is that of a 31 year old man whose last address was in Eau Claire, but he says the man was homeless.
Kowalcyk says no one was living in the home at the time, but was recently sold.
He says they have canvassed the area, but don’t have any more information.
An autopsy is scheduled for tomorrow in the twin cities.
