Man found dead along Rapid Creek

RAPID CITY, S.D. – One man was found dead Wednesday morning along Rapid Creek.

A spokesperson for the Rapid City Police Department says police were called just after 8 a.m. An adult male was found deceased in a homeless camp on the south side of Rapid Creek, east of Pressler Junction.

“People, you know, congregate in an area like this because they don’t want to be bothered,” said Brendyn Medina, public information officer for the RCPD. “And so that’s the unfortunate thing is sometimes we don’t come across these situations until tragedy has already struck.”

The man’s identity is not being released at this time.
