BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — Mercer County authorities have released the name of a man whose body was found Sunday near a mine pond.

The Bismarck Tribune reports that 22 year-old Tyrel McBain was found dead near the mine pond, a state wildlife management area, between Hazen and Beulah Sunday afternoon.

Mercer County Sheriff Dean Danseizen said the man was found by a passerby about mid-afternoon.

He said McBain was pronounced dead at the scene and the incident is still under investigation.

Danseizen said an autopsy is being conducted.

McBain grew up in Hazen but had moved to the West Fargo area several years ago.
