SYRACUSE — The body of a man missing for two weeks was found in a remote, unincorporated area near Syracuse Sunday.
"A hunter found him in a field out in the middle of nowhere," said Syracuse Police Lt. Tracy Jensen.
Kenneth Wallace was last seen leaving his ex-girlfriend's house on Oct. 21 following an argument with her, Jensen said. He was wearing a light jacket, Levi's and flip flops.
"He was not dressed for the weather change that happened," Jensen said.
About 9 a.m. Saturday, a pheasant hunter found Wallace's body near a wooden fence post in a field about 2 to 2 ½ miles away from where he was last seen. There were no signs of obvious trauma or foul play, Jensen said. He did not know the man's age, but Wallace was believed to be in his 40s.
Investigators were waiting for toxicology tests to be completed before determining a cause of death. Jensen said there are allegations that alcohol and prescription meds may have played a role.
The area where Wallace's body was found does not have any homes near it and is not traveled frequently, Jensen said.
