FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WPTA) - The Indiana State Police are investigating after a Fort Wayne man’s body was found alongside a road in Whitley County Monday afternoon.

Police say an on-duty ISP Trooper came across the body lying in a ditch while driving down County Rd. 700 E. Detectives with the Fort Wayne Post, Whitley County Sheriff’s Department and the Whitley County Coroner’s office immediately responded to the scene.

The body was identified as a 30-year-old Fort Wayne man named Curtis Thomas. We don’t have many details, but police say the death is suspicious, and they’re still investigating. Actual cause of death will be determined later this week.
