Shayla Wiggins, a 19 year old Pokemon player, found a dead body in Wind River. The teenager went out in search of Pokemon while playing Pokemon GO.

Shayla lives with her mother at B&K Trailer Park. She left her home in search of a Pokemon but at around 8.40AM, she came across a floating dead body in the river.

I was trying to get a Pokémon from a natural water resource. She said that she jumped over the fence to go towards the river in search of a Pokémon.

I was walking towards the bridge along the shore when I saw something in the water,” Shayla said. “I had to take a second look and I realized it was a body.

Shocked and terrified, she quickly called 911 and officers arrived on the scene. According to the authorities, the body had been there for less than 24 hours. The death seems to be accidental:

The death appears to be accidental in nature and possibly that of a drowning. There is no evidence at this time that would indicate foul play. Evidence located at the scene has led investigators to believe the man went into the water at the location he was found

Authorities are still investigating the situation and will update us on further developments.
