The body of 60-year-old Kevin Bruce Rogers, who is known to have lived in Springfield, about 45 miles southwest of where his body was found, was later identified.

In Iowa, Fr. mushroom hunter found on the road a woman’s body. Her body is believed to have been there “for some time,” police told McClatchy News.

In April Fr. a mushroom hunter in Indiana found the boy’s body “near the roadway in a dense forest.”

Many mushroom hunters begin the search from late March to early May, according to McClatchy News. Morels are likely to appear if the daytime temperature is below 70.

Morels are wild edible mushrooms that are known to be delicious. They are hard to spot because they are disguised in the environment.
