While roaming her hometown in search of Pokemon with the new Pokemon GO game on her phone, 19-year-old Riverton, Wyoming resident Shayla Wiggins found something much more serious.

The teenage found a body floating in the Wind River on Friday morning.

"The Pokemons are all over Riverton," she said. "I was trying to get a Pokemon from a natural water resource." It was after she hopped a fence in search of some water Pokemon when the chilling discovery came.

"I was walking towards the bridge along the shore when I saw something in the water," Wiggins said. "I had to take a second look and I realized it was a body."

She went on to describe the body as an average-sized male, floating about three feet from the shore. "It was pretty shocking," she recalls. "I didn't really know what to do at first. But I called 911 right away and they came really quickly." Detectives later told Wiggins the body had been in the river for less than 24 hours.
