Woman Discovers Body While Playing Pokémon Go

( 4UMF NEWS ) Woman Discovers Body While Playing Pokémon Go:

A Wyoming woman was searching for Pokemon while playing a new game on her phone, when she found a dead body instead.

Shayla Wiggins told KTRK-TV, she was playing Pokémon Go, which requires users to walk around and capture Pokemon and collect items in real-world locations, when she found the body.

“I woke up this morning, and I wanted to go get a water Pokemon, so I just got up and went for my little walk, a walk to catch Pokemon,” Wiggins told KTRK-TV.

Wiggins found a man lying face down in the river near her Riverton, Wyo., home.

Fremont County Sheriff’s Department told County 10 the body belonged to an unidentified adult male.

“The death appears to be accidental in nature and possibly that of a drowning,” the sheriff’s department told County 10 in a statement. 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.”
