(UPI) _ The security chief at the Hare Krishna commune in Marshall County found the charred remains of what New Vrindaban officials claim are those of a devotee. The body had been gnawed by dogs. Officials from the Marshall County sheriff's office were on the scene Wednesday. Sheriff Donald Bordenkircher said in a prepared statement the body was found by Krishna security chief Robert Hamilton about 2 p.m. Tuesday. Hamilton told police the body was that of Todd Schenker, a devotee in his 40s. The body was sent to the state examiner's office in South Charleston. Bordenkircher _ in a prepared statement _ said no positive identification has been made, and that he has assigned two detectives to the case. The body was found in the yard of the Schenker home, located on Big Wheeling Creek Road at the foot of Turkey Dam. "The case is extremely interesting and suspicious and as in such matters as this death there are significant amounts of mystery," Bordenkircher said in the statement. "The job now is to slowly unravel the mystery and find the truth." _____
