Douglas County Sheriff’s deputies were called Saturday morning to the scene of a fatality accident in a field east of Baldwin City involving an all-terrain vehicle.
The body of 21-year-old Preston Scheibler, of Lawrence, was found in a field northwest of the intersection of North 500 and East 2300 roads, according to a press release from the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office.
Scheibler was pronounced dead at the scene, which deputies were led to by a Kansas Wildlife and Parks Conservation officer.
Officials are investigating the cause of the accident, which they believe occurred late Friday or early Saturday. Scheibler’s body was discovered just after dawn.
