Authorities continue to investigate after a man's body was found Tuesday in rural Seminole County.

The body of 24-year-old Justin T. Hinkle was found by his family Tuesday morning in a rural area near Konawa, Okla.

Investigators said the medical examiner's office has not determined a cause or manner of death, but the OSBI is now considering it a suspicious death.
