Around 1 a.m. Tuesday morning, police were dispatched to a dead body near the walking trail by the creek.

Salem Police Officer James Moore said Brandon Booker, 34, New Albany, was visiting his girlfriend in Salem. He apparently left her house and when she went to look for him, she found him on the trail and called police, who found him already deceased. Moore said the coroner hasn't concluded their investigation, but the case has been confirmed as a death by suicide.
