Share this post

An autopsy to determine the identity of a man whose body was discovered in a rural area of northwest Indiana late Monday afternoon has been completed by the Porter County Coroner's Office. Coroner Chuck Harris says the victim was a white or Hispanic male, who died of an apparent gunshot wound, and no further information is being released at this time.  The Porter County Sheriff's Office says the body was found in a drainage ditch about twenty-feet wide near County Road 500 West in Boone Township, south of Hebron, and that they are now considering this a homicide investigation. Authorities ask that anyone with information, or who may have seen any suspicious activity recently in the area of 500 West and County Road 1000 South, are asked to contact Porter County Sheriff's Commander Jeff Biggs, at 219-477-3141, or to their anonymous tip line, WeTip, at 1-800-782-7463, which offers up to a $1000 reward for information aiding in the arrest and conviction of any suspects involved.
