Two people in Texas discovered the body of a man while playing the cellphone game "Pokemon Go," and the sheriff's department is now investigating the death as a homicide, officials said.
The man has been identified as Christopher Robert Lowe, 34, of New Braunfels, the Comal County sheriff's office said. A man and a woman discovered Lowe's body just before noon Thursday at the Saint Joseph Cemetery in the 100 block of Wenzel Lane off FM 482.
The circumstances at the scene indicated Lowe's death was a homicide, the sheriff's office said.
It's not the first time "Pokemon Go" players have stumbled upon bodies while playing the augmented-reality game. A Wyoming teen found a dead body in a river while searching for water Pokemon last month. Another body was found in Nashua, New Hampshire's Salmon Brook, although authorities noted the death did not appear suspicious.
