Central Iowa Authorities Identify Body Found in Field

CAMBRIDGE, Iowa (AP) - Authorities have identified the body of a man found in a farm field in central Iowa.

Polk County Sheriff's Sgt. Jana Abens says the body of 49-year-old Barton Wayne Tingley, of Des Moines, was found Thursday in a rural area about seven miles southeast of Cambridge, near the Polk and Story county line.

Abens says the body was discovered by a friend who was looking for Tingley. She says there are no signs of foul play, though the location of the body is unusual.

The county medical examiner will perform an autopsy Friday to determine the cause of death.

Authorities have not released additional information.
