Body Found in Carmel Woods Identified

Putnam County Sheriff Donald B. Smith reports that a dead body found in a wooded area off U.S. Route 6 in Carmel on Tuesday (August 12) has been identified as that of Mr. Mark Conroy, aged 53, a local man. The body was found lying in woods a few hundred yards in from the north side of Route 6, about a half-mile west of the Route 6 intersection with John Simpson Road.

The condition of the remains suggests that Mr. Conroy had been dead for several days or perhaps even weeks before his body was discovered. The cause of his death has not yet been determined.
