Sheriff: Body Found In De Soto That Of Missing Man

DE SOTO, Kan. (AP) — A body found in rural northeast Kansas has been identified as that of an Olathe man missing since Oct. 20.

The Johnson County Sheriff’s Office said Thursday there’s no evidence of criminal activity in the unattended death of 22-year-old Brad Cook. A pedestrian found Cook’s body Tuesday in rural De Soto.

The discovery was made about two miles from where another unattended death was reported this week. In that case, a person was found dead in a carport outside a De Soto apartment complex.

Investigators have not revealed the cause of either death, and say they don’t believe the two cases are connected.
