Pokemon Go has taken over the world in the last 72 hours or so, with gamers walking around in the real-world on the hunt for Pokemon. Well, 19-year-old Shayla Wiggins from Riverton, Wyoming was exploring around when she found the dead body of an unidentified man.




Wiggins said she found the body in the Big Wind River, adding that she was "trying to get a Pokémon from a natural water resource". The Fremont County Sherriff's Office said that the man appears to have died in an accident, where he could have possibly of drowned. There's no evidence at this time that points to foul play, says Fremont County undersherriff Ryan D. Lee.
