GREENFIELD, Ind. - The identity of a man whose remains were found in a creek bed Thursday has been released.
Hancock County sheriff's Capt. Jeff Rasche said Saturday that the remains were those of Jody Scroggins, 56.
Scroggins was reported missing June 24.
Police were called to the creek in the 3100 block of West U.S. 40, near Greenfield, after workers at a nearby business reported a foul smell.
A Silver Alert had been issued for Scroggins after family members said they went to his home on June 24 and found the front door open with the air conditioner running.
Scroggins' personal items, including his shoes, were still in the home.
"The autopsy did not reveal evidence of foul play relating to the death of Scroggins," Rasche said in an emailed statement. "The exact cause of death has not been determined. However, toxicology reports are still pending."
Police said Scroggins was legally blind and had been treated for seizures in the past.
