LADOGA, Ind. (WTHI) – The DNA results from the Indiana State Police Laboratory confirmed the identity of a body found in a trailer in Montgomery County on June 15.
The body was identified as Shane L. Sowers, 41 with a last known address of 218 North 6th Street in Clinton.
The decomposition of the body prevented a positive identification of the deceased. The results of the June 16 autopsy were inconclusive and the cause of death was undetermined.
The investigation is ongoing. No obvious signs of foul play were found, but foul play has not been ruled out.
This case began on June 15 when a relative was dismantling the trailer that had been moved from Clinton to Montgomery County. That is when the body was found.
Officials discovered on June 10 the trailer was taken to Ladoga from 215 North 6th Street in Clinton.
Investigators also found the City of Clinton had notified the owner of the trailer in early June that the trailer needed to be vacated from the property.
