Authorities are investigating the death of a man whose body was found at the base of a factory water tower in southeast Nebraska.
Thayer County Sheriff David Lee says the body of 19-year-old Taylor Horsechief, of Deshler, was discovered a little after 6 a.m. Saturday at the former Deshler Broom Factory. The factory closed in 1998.
Lee says it appears Horsechief died from an accidental fall, but the investigation is continuing. Investigators are awaiting the results of an autopsy.
Horsechief graduated from Deshler High School in 2011.
