Body Found Off Mustang Offramp; Ramp Reopened

By  | 

SPARKS, NV - Washoe sheriff's detectives and federal investigators are investigating a body found near the eastbound Mustang offramp Monday morning.

The Nevada Highway Patrol initially responded, then ceded authority to the county. The eastbound and westbound Mustang offramps from Interstate 80 are closed to traffic during the investigation. The area is cordoned off as a crime scene.

There's no word at this point how the person died. He is identified as a 50-year-old man, but his name hasn't been released. Investigators say friends loaned him a white pickup similar to one being processed near where the body was found in a ditch.
