Police investigating body found on I-94 in Minneapolis


Minneapolis police are investigating after a man's body was found on Interstate 94 near downtown on Saturday morning.

Minnesota State Patrol tweeted that there was an "unwitnessed death" between intersections 231B and 233B, near Groveland Avenue.

Early reports suggested the man died in a possible a hit and run crash, but Minneapolis police spokesman John Elder told BringMeTheNews it is being considered a possible suicide.

No further information about the incident is being released at this time as a result, with the medical examiner having taken custody of the body.

Two lanes of westbound 94 were closed while authorities attended to the scene. They have since been reopened.
