Body found Wednesday identified

Amarillo, TX - A man found dead in Amarillo earlier this week has been confirmed as a missing person out of Nevada.

The Potter-Randall Special Crimes unit says 63-year-old James Edward Pennington was reported missing in Las Vegas last March.

On Wednesday, Pennington's body was discovered by a TxDOT worker near Amarillo Boulevard and Coulter.

Investigators now say they are not suspecting foul play in this case.
