    • Hey Mike. This was the first story about the discovery of the body and at that point we had not received official confirmation the body was discovered by a Game Warden.

      Regarding “repeating Mendo Fevers story,” though we appreciate you looking out for us and making sure no one is copy/pasting our content, this is MendoFever. We’ve now had three separate stories regarding the discovery and each one builds on each other. If there seems to be some repeating content between the three, that is for the sake of some readers who did not read the initial reports and need caught up.

      Appreciate your readership!
