Big Horn and Park County officials are investigating the death of a man whose body was found Monday near Frannie.
On Monday afternoon, the Park County Sheriff’s Office received a report of a deceased male in the road on Lane 5W, a short county road which runs east to west between Deaver and Frannie.
Deputies from both counties responded, along with North Big Horn Hospital Emergency Medical Services. The man was pronounced dead at the scene.
The Park County Sheriff’s Office reported that the investigation is ongoing and involves three agencies – the Park County Sheriff’s office, Big Horn County Sheriff’s Office and the Wyoming Department of Criminal Investigation.
The identity of the man has not been released, as authorities are notifying next of kin. An autopsy is also being performed.
