Lander, WY (AP) - The Fremont County coroner says he's trying to identify a man whose body was found Feb. 26 in a residence north of Lander.

Coroner Ed McAuslan tells the Riverton Ranger the man apparently had died days or weeks before a neighbor called police to check on the home

McAuslan said there were no signs the death was suspicious. The body had decomposed before it was discovered.

The coroner says he hopes entering the fingerprints into databases will lead to the man's identification.
