EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) — Some middle-school students from Bloomington made a disturbing discovery while on a field trip to Eden Prairie — they found a man's body.
KSTP-TV (http://bit.ly/w5WuR6) reports students from Oak Grove Middle School were walking around the Richard T. Anderson Conservation Area on Thursday morning. A group of about 30 found the body on a trail in a wooded area.
Eden Prairie police say it was a man who apparently had shot himself. A weapon was found near the body.
The teacher canceled the rest of the field trip and took the students back to school where grief counselors were available.
