Missing Wavery Man’s Body Found in Meeker County 13 Feb 18

The Meeker County Sheriff’s Department is looking for information regarding a Waverly man whose body was found this weekend south of Darwin.  

Forty-year-old Shawn Medley was reported missing last Wednesday.   

Medley’s abandoned car was found in Litchfield early Saturday morning, and at 2:15 p.m. Sunday, the sheriff’s office got a call from someone who found Medley’s body in Ellsworth Township, which is an area that includes Greenleaf Lake State Recreation Area south of Darwin.  

The exact location is not being released at this time.   

Authorities say it appeared Medley had been deceased for quite some time and investigators think he died in a different location and his body was dropped off where it was found. 

An investigation into the cause of death is ongoing, and the sheriff’s office is asking that anyone who had contact with Medley, or saw his vehicle, a Silver Hyundai Elantra (see photos below), during the past week, contact them at 320-693-5400.  

An annonymous tip can be left at 320-693-5411.  

The Litchfield Police and the Minnesota BCA are assisting the sheriff’s office in the investigation.
