Kansas Bureau of Investigation officials on Wednesday identified the body found in a field earlier in the week in Hodgeman County.

The body was that of Bayron O. Diaz-Bautista, 21, of the Fort Collins, Colo., area.

Deputies located Diaz-Bautista's body about about three miles west of Hanston, and east of the intersection of N.W. 225 Road and N Road.

KBI officials said results of an autopsy are pending.

The case is being investigated as a homicide, according to the KBI.
