ST. CLOUD, Minn. -- A man found dead Tuesday east of St. Cloud has been identified as a central Minnesota resident missing since December.
The Midwest Medical Examiner’s Office identified the body as that of Jamie Wylie, 31 of Foley, according to a report Wednesday from WJON radio. The cause of death was pending.
Benton County Sheriff Brad Bennett said deputies responded Tuesday afternoon to a report of a body along County Road 75, according to WJON. The investigation into the death continues.
Wylie, a Cottage Grove native, had a wife and a young son. He was last seen at a friend’s house in St. Cloud on the afternoon of Dec. 9. Relatives reported him missing Dec. 15.
