Man’s Body Found in Creek Near Billings
Yellowstone County authorities are investigating after a man’s body was found in Alkali Creek near MetraPark.
Sheriff’s Capt. Bill Michaelis tells The Billings Gazette a hiker on a walking path called 911 late Tuesday morning to report a possible body floating in a pool on the creek.
Emergency crews found the man’s body floating face down.
Alkali Creek runs under Bench Boulevard and through a marshy area before tumbling down a steep, rocky hill and collecting in a small pool.
Michaelis said it is not known how long the man’s body was in the water.
An autopsy was planned to determine the cause of death.
