WAUSAU, WI (WTAQ) - An autopsy is scheduled Wednesday on a 33-year-old man who went missing, and was later found dead in Wausau.
His live-in girlfriend told police that she was looking for the man since Monday night -- and she found his body Tuesday while walking on a trail which they enjoyed hiking. The man was found lying on rocks near the shore of Lake Wausau at the bottom of a steep embankment on the city's west side.
A police official quoted a witness as saying the man left his house intoxicated, and he has a history of substance abuse. He had a severe head wound, but officials are not sure if it had anything to do with his death.
Police say nothing's been ruled out for a possible cause of death. The man's name was not immediately released.
