Group playing Pokemon GO finds dead man near seminary in Weddington,NC
Finding usual things during travel may be a common phenomenon, but not this, not a dead body. This is the second time I’ve seen news about a dead body being found by trainers, though I’m sure it’s happened more than twice.
According to wsoctv.com, Union County Deputies were investigating after a man was found dead near a Christian college in Matthews early Saturday morning. The man has been identified as a 42-year-old man, which I will keep his name private.
The Union County Sheriff’s Office tweeted about this incident as most people seem to do these days.

Authorities told their local news channel that a father and his children were playing Pokemon GO around 8 a.m. when they came across this mans body near the seminary and called 911.
Dr. Richard Land, president of Southern Evangelical Seminary, issued the following statement:
“I was informed by the Union County Sheriff’s office this morning that a deceased body of a male was found in the bushes of the island in front of the SES campus. Evidently, this person died or was killed in another location and was left on our campus.”
So far there has been no autopsy so we do not know the cause of death other than that police say there has been minor trauma and claim this man’s death to be suspicious, we would like to hope that this find doesn’t happen again to any Pokemon trainer as it can be emotionally scarring for some. Remember to always keep an eye out and be safe at all times.
That’s all for now have a wonderful day!
