Body found in Roosevelt County

The Fort Peck Tribes and Roosevelt County Sheriff's Office are investigating what they are calling an 'unattended' death south of Fort Kipp. 

The sheriff's office said on Monday that deputies have identified the body but will not release the name until family members have been notified.

The investigation has been turned over to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

At this point, authorities have not released information about whether they suspect foul play.

Here is the announcement they made on Facebook on Sunday:
