Posted: Updated:

SPEARFISH, S.D. (AP) - Authorities have released the name of a 24-year-old Spearfish man found dead over the weekend a short distance from his abandoned vehicle.

The Lawrence County Sheriff's Office said a snowplow operator found the body of Gerald Krejci on Saturday. The man's vehicle had become stuck after sliding off a private road northwest of Spearfish.

An autopsy is being conducted and the death is under investigation. 

A strong winter storm passed through the region on Friday and Saturday, but investigators have not determined Krejci's time of death.
