CEDAR RAPIDS (AP) — Authorities are investigating a man’s death after an Iowa hunter found his body under a bridge east of Cedar Rapids.

The Linn County Sheriff’s office is leading the investigation. KCRG reported the death is considered suspicious.

Officials aren’t sure how long the middle-aged man’s body was there before the hunter found it under the Squaw Creek Bridge on Saturday.

Officials would not discuss the condition of the body or release the man’s identity.

The man’s body was taken to Ankeny for an autopsy.
