      Rattlesnake hunters find decomposed body

      Kansas City police are awaiting the results of an autopsy to learn the identity and cause of death of a decomposed body three young people found while hunting for rattlesnakes.

      Investigators have confirmed the remains found Friday were human, but they're not sure if they are of a man or a woman, or the person's age.

      Neighbors in the area say they smelled what they thought was a dead animal earlier this year.

      Police say a 20-year-old man, 18-year-old man and 16-year-old boy found the body about 20 feet into the woods on the city's south side.

      Police say it appears the body had been there for months.
