The Clark County Sheriff's Department is investigating a dead body found along the bike path.

The Clark County Sheriff’s office is investigating an incident on the Bike Path just north of Washington St. in the city limits of New Carlisle.

New Carlisle Medics were dispatched to the bike path for “a man down, not breathing with blood coming from his head, possible DOA.”

Initial reports indicate a man had suffered a gunshot to the head.

Investigators would not indicate if it was a suicide or if foul play was involved.
