NORTH PLATTE, Nebraska — North Platte authorities are investigating what led to the death of a man whose body was found near a parking lot of a fast-food restaurant.
The body was found around 9:30 p.m. Sunday near a van with Oregon license plates that was sitting behind the McDonald's parking lot. A man walking by the van saw the body, went inside the restaurant and told workers what he'd seen.
The workers say the van had been parked in the parking lot of a nearby Taco Bell for at least a month but was moved recently to the spot where the body was found.
Police have not released the name of the man nor any details about the investigation.
