The body of a man in his mid 40's has been found in an irrigation ditch in Middleton. 

Police have not released the man's identity yet. He was found this morning at 606 Main Street. He was found by the property manager of trailer park around 11 am this morning.

According to KTVB, the cause of death is unclear and an investigation is ongoing.

I can't help but think, "what a horrible way to die." Nobody wants to be found dead in a ditch.  I wonder who loved this man? Who was his family? How did it come to this? We'll keep you posted as his identity is released and the investigation is complete.

Please keep this man's family in your thoughts and prayers in the may days to come.
