Body found near Orwell Lake, foul play suspected


FERGUS FALLS, Minn. (AP) -- The Otter Tail County sheriff's department officials say they suspect foul play in the death of a man whose body was found near Orwell Lake.

KBRF-AM reports although the body has not been positively identified, sheriff's officials think it's missing Otter Tail resident Scott Burris. It's based on gender, clothing and physical appearance. Burris has been missing since May 22.

The body was found by people tubing around 7:30 p.m. Friday, about 15 miles from where his van was located.
