PIEDMONT, Okla. (AP) - A man’s body found by deer hunters in Kingfisher County near Piedmont has been identified.

The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation says fingerprints were used to identify the body as that of 41-year-old Michael Don Lea.

The OSBI says Lea is believed to have been driving a stolen vehicle that was being pursued by Piedmont police in September. The agency says police lost sight of the vehicle, but later found it abandoned and that Lea’s fingerprints were found on the vehicle.

The body was found Nov. 30 by deer hunters who reported it to the Kingfisher County Sheriff’s Office, which asked the OSBI for assistance.

The OSBI says the state medical examiner’s office is still trying to determine Lea’s cause and manner of death.
