“This appears to be a tragic and isolated incident,” IHIT Const. Harrison Mohr added in a news release issued just before 12:30 p.m.

“Our thoughts are with the victim’s family, and our team of investigators are working diligently to try to find the answers his family needs, as well as the answers we need for a successful investigation.”
