A Clark County Deputy found a body in a wooden area off County Highway K in Unity. The sheriff said the call came in around 11:30 a.m. Saturday morning. A person riding a bike in Unity just off County Highway K smelled something unusual and called the sheriff's department immediately.

A deputy came out to Badger Road to check out the complaint and found a body in a wooded area. Almost two weeks ago 17-year old Adam Falconer disappeared. He was last seen with two other men. According to court reports, there was a fight about drug money. Twenty-two-year old Jeffry Schultz is in custody for shooting one of the passengers in the hand. Police believe Schultz also shot and killed Falconer in the same incident then, dumped his body.

The sheriff said Falconer is the only person missing in Clark County, but it is too early to tell if this is Falconer. The body will have to go to the Ramsey Medical Center. The sheriff says they should have more information Monday.
