Wednesday afternoon, Benton County Sheriff's responded to a call from a driver who reported seeing a body lying next to the chain link fence that borders the interstate, just East of Prosser.

Deputies responded, and found the person, believed to be a male between the ages of 55-70. The man was balding with a long beard. He was wearing jeans, a dark green light jacket, and a black beanie. He also was wearing newer looking shoes.

No ID was found on the victim, and an autopsy is scheduled to determine the cause of death. Anyone who may have information is asked to call (509)-628-0333.
