Police: UW-Stout student from Shakopee found dead in driveway


A 22-year-old University of Wisconsin-Stout student has been found dead Saturday morning, Menomonie police say.

Police and university leaders have identified the man as Rickey Alan Hible of Shakopee, the Dunn County News reports.

According to the police department, Hible's body was found around 7 a.m. in a driveway along 920 8th Street East in Menomonie, Wisconsin.

There were visible lacerations on his body, and officials say they believe the cuts were related to some broken glass found around the sign of nearby Our Saviors Lutheran Church.

His body will be taken to the Ramsey County Medical Examiner's Office for an autopsy.

WEAU says Hible was a sophomore at the university and had been majoring in engineering technology with a mechanical design minor.

The incident is under investigation.
