SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- The Springfield Fire Department said Thursday that the man whose body was found by a railroad company crew on Tuesday was Ross Lee, 50, of Bois D’Arc. A medical examiner in Columbia is doing an autopsy but investigators said they saw no signs at the scene that the death wasn’t from natural causes.
The body was found near Glenstone Avenue at Page Street early on Tuesday afternoon. Investigators said it had scrapes as if Lee had fallen down.
