Wyoming man killed in apparent fall in Deadwood

DEADWOOD, S.D. – Deadwood Police are investigating the death of a Buffalo, Wyo. man who apparently succumbed to injuries sustained from a high-level fall over the weekend in Deadwood.

Deadwood Police Chief Cory Shafer said at approximately 2:20 a.m. Saturday, a woman alerted a Lawrence County Sheriff’s deputy near The Lodge, stating her 38-year-old boyfriend did not return from downtown Deadwood and was missing.

Shafer says at approximately 3:44 a.m., authorities located the male laying along the west side of U.S. Highway 85 near mile marker 30. The male was pronounced deceased on scene.

A preliminary investigation suggests the male succumbed to injuries sustained from a high-level fall. No signs of foul play were evident at the scene.

The incident remains under investigation and the name of the individual, along with other details regarding the incident are expected to be released later this week.
