Driver finds body along Edmond freeway | News
EDMOND, Okla.—Authorities in Edmond are still trying to figure out what happened that led to a man’s body being discovered along the side of a busy highway.
A gruesome discovery brought traffic to a halt Saturday morning.
A motorist saw the body of a man lying along I-35, between Danforth and Covell, just after 4 a.m.
Jenny Monroe, with the Edmond Police Department, said, “We had one lane, one northbound lane of I-35 shut down so we could have our crews and everything out there. So we opened that up around 8:45 a.m.”
