Body found in freezer in vacant Fort Dodge building; police investigating death


FORT DODGE, Iowa – Police in Fort Dodge are investigating after the body of a Fort Dodge man was found inside the freezer area at a vacant building over the weekend.

The address is the site of a former restaurant, and police say since it has closed, the building has become an area where homeless individuals would sometimes visit in order to seek shelter.

The body of a man, later identified as 56-year-old Terry Brogan, was located by officials in an area that was once the freezer for the closed restaurant. There were no immediate signs of foul play but police are continuing to investigate the death.
