MOBERLY - A man was found frozen Wednesday morning on a farm in south Moberly.

A farmer fertilizing the land found the body laying next to farm equipment.

The Boone County medical examiner will perform an autopsy in Columbia this morning to determine what killed that man.

The Moberly Police Department were at the scene Wednesday.

So far, they have remained quiet about the investigation. They haven't released details on the man's identity but he's believed to be a white male in his mid 40's.

They took surveillance video from Nelly's, a nearby restaurant.

Randolph County Coroner Gerald Luntsford classified the death as suspicious and believes he could have been laying there for two days. He declined to comment if the body had any wounds or signs of trauma.

Once the autopsy is complete, we will have more details.
