FOLEY, Minn. (KNSI) An autopsy is being done to determine the identity and cause of death of a person whose body was found just east of St. Cloud on Tuesday.

Benton County Sheriff Brad Bennett says the body was found alongside Benton County Road 75 between Mayhew Lake Road and East Saint Germain Street.
