CODY, Wyo. (AP) — Authorities say a man whose decapitated body was found in a remote area of northwestern Wyoming died of multiple gunshot wounds.

The Park County Sheriff’s Office said Monday that authorities are pursuing dozen of leads in the case but still have not identified the victim.

Sheriff Scott Steward says a forensic report determined the removal of the victim’s head and one of his arms occurred after he had been shot and killed.

Attempts over the weekend to locate the missing body parts using cadaver dogs turned up no new evidence.

The body was found by hunters on Jan. 9, roughly 10 miles south of the Montana border along Little Sand Coulee Road.

Authorities have said the victim was approximately 5-foot-4 to 5-foot-6 and weighed between 180 and 200 pounds.
