Man's body found buried at property in Pelican Rapids

It followed a report of an incident at the property on Friday.

A homicide investigation has been launched in Otter Tail County after a body was found buried on a property.

The grisly discovery was made on Saturday morning, with the body of a 28-year-old man found at the residence in Pelican Rapids.

It came after someone reported an "incident" occurring at the same residence just after 3 p.m. Friday. The details of what this incident entailed have not yet been released.

When deputies found the body, the sheriff's office and Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension launched a homicide investigation.

The investigation is ongoing and the identity of the victim won't be released until his family has been notified.

The Otter Tail County Sheriff’s Office indicated there is no threat to the general public.
