Police have released the name of a man found dead in a trailside creek in Fayetteville.
Wesley Hunt, 43, of Fayetteville was found dead Saturday off Town Branch Trail near South School Avenue, south of 15th Street. A woman on the trail called police about 4:15 p.m. after finding Hunt’s body, Sgt. Anthony Murphy said.
A 7 Hills Homeless Center representative confirmed Hunt had been a client, and that he was well-known among the center’s clientele.
There were no obvious signs of trauma, Murphy said.
Hunt’s body has been sent to the state Crime Laboratory in Little Rock to determine a cause of death, Murphy said.
