Police investigating after man’s body found


Police are investigating after a man’s body was found Saturday in Crawfordsville.

Crawfordsville Police received a call about 6:30 p.m. from a passerby who found the body in the area of the 600 block of Mill Street, Chief Mike Norman said.

Police identified the man as Wesley Thorton, 42, of Crawfordsville. Thorton had been reported missing earlier last week, Norman said.

Investigators don’t know how long the body had been there.

“At this point, there’s no signs of foul play,” Norman said.

An autopsy is scheduled later this week, Norman added.

Anyone who had contact with or spoken to Thorton in the last seven days is asked to call Crawfordsville Det. Sgt. Geoff Payne at 765-362-3762 ext. 215.
