      Authorities recover body in shallow grave near Meeker

      Police say they've discovered a body in a shallow grave in rural Pottawatomie County.

      Several agencies have been in the area since Monday, working on a tip, police on the scene said.

      Members of the FBI, Sac and Fox police and Pottawatomie County sheriff's office found the body Wednesday afternoon in a field off Hazel Dell and Croslin Road. The body was exhumed from the shallow grave and taken to the medical examiner's office.

      No identity has been made, police said. They're not yet sure how the body got to this location.

      Police say the investigation will continue into the night.
