The Lyon County Sheriff's Office reports they are investigating a body found near the Kentucky Fried Chicken on West Newlands Drive in Fernley on Wednesday.

They said the body belonged to a black male adult around 30 or 40 years old.

They said the body had been out there a couple of days.

The man had no property on him and no bags, so officials do not have an identity at this time.

Lyon County Sheriff's Office says there were no signs of trauma and they found him in the middle of a field behind the Shell Station nearby.

They said the investigation is ongoing.

Anyone with any information on the case is urged to contact the Lyon County Sheriff's Office or Secret Witness.

This is a developing story.
