Authorities ID man found shot to death in Cass County cemetery

Authorities on Thursday identified a man found dead Wednesday in a cemetery as Forrest D. Fuller, 25, of Peculiar.

“It appears that Mr. Fuller had been shot and at this time we have asked for the assistance of the Metro Squad,” Cass County Sheriff Dwight Diehl said.

Someone called the sheriff’s office about 2:30 p.m. Wednesday and said they had seen a body in the Wills Cemetery on South Thorngrove Road east of Peculiar. Deputies arrived and located Fuller’s body near a vehicle.

Fuller was pronounced dead at the scene. An autopsy will be conducted.

About 10 teams of investigators began work early Thursday. Anyone with information should call the TIPS Hotline (816) 474-TIPS or 816-380-8712.
