NASHUA, N.H. (AP) - Police say a man’s body was recovered from a brook behind the New Hampshire Holocaust Memorial after it was spotted by someone playing the smartphone-app game “Pokemon Go.”

Lt. Robert Giggi tells WMUR-TV (https://bit.ly/29MAYkH) the player was looking in obscure places in connection with the game Thursday. Giggi said apparently, that’s what “brought the person that found the victim to that area.”

An autopsy was planned.

The body was found near Rotary Park, the location of the Holocaust memorial. This week, the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum and Arlington National Cemetery requested that smartphone users refrain from “catching” Pokemon when they visit. The museum is a Pokestop - a place where players can get free in-game items.

Last week, a woman playing the game in Wyoming found a man’s body in a river.
