WATERLOO — A man discovered a dead body in a wooded area in the 300 block of East Donald Street while hunting for morel mushrooms Sunday afternoon, said Police Capt. Jason Feaker.
Feaker said the older woman’s body, found well off the road and in the vicinity of the Cedar Valley Cardiovascular Center and A To Z Learning Center and Day Care, has been identified and police are now working to inform the next of kin.
The boat became disabled Saturday afternoon at the Park Avenue bridge and was close to the dam.
The man notified police at 2:29 p.m.
It’s not known at this time how long the body had been there or what caused her death.
No weapons were found at the scene. Feaker said his initial belief is no foul play was involved, and the public is in no immediate danger.
Matt Hartleip, one of the store’s teachers, was the “good buyer” Bob Guthart sought, and he officially became the new owner Oct. 1 after selling a “ceremonious” set of guitar picks.
