Natural Causes Suspected in Hiker Death

By  | 

Police don't suspect foul play in the death of a Sparks man whose body was found after he failed to return from walking his dog.

The name of the 43-year-old man was not released.

Police said the man's wife reported him missing when he failed to return home from taking his dog for their usual walk Tuesday night.

The man's body was found early Wednesday in a hilly area about a
mile from his apartment. His dog was still by his side, police said.
