It looks like it’s time to bring in Detective Pikachu, as a body has been found by a 19-year old girl playing Pokemon Go in the town of Riverton, Wyoming. During an interview with a local news outlet, the girl, named Shayla Wiggins, said:
The Pokemon are all over Riverton. I was trying to get a Pokemon from a natural water resource. I was walking towards the bridge along the shore when I saw something in the water. I had to take a second look and I realized it was a body. It was pretty shocking. I didn’t really know what to do at first. But I called 911 right away and they came really quickly. I was pretty scared and cried for a while.
Later in the day, the local police released a statement, saying:
The death appears to be accidental in nature and possibly that of a drowning. There is no evidence at this time that would indicate foul play. Evidence located at the scene has led investigators to believe the man went into the water at the location he was found.
While everyone has been joking about people dying playing Pokemon Go, it seems they were just a bit off the mark.
Pokemon Go is available now in the US, Australia, and New Zealand.
