The Natrona County Sheriff's Office is investigating an apparent suicide west of Casper, Sgt. Aaron Shatto said Monday.

A body with an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound was found about noon Monday just off Wyoming Highway 220 at mile marker 107 near Goose Egg Road, Shatto said.

Sheriff's deputies and Casper Police Department officers went to the scene.

The victim's identity will not be released until after the coroner has finished her investigation and family members have been notified, Shatto said.
