SCOTTSBLUFF, Neb. (AP) - The Scotts Bluff County sheriff has identified a body found at the Scotts Bluff National Monument in the Nebraska Panhandle.

Sheriff Mark Overman identified the body found Sunday afternoon as 22-year-old Cody Bindschadler of rural Scottsbluff.

Overman says that Bindschadler fell from a dangerous non-public area atop and east of a walking tunnel on the Saddle Rock Trail.

The body was found on a slope east of the walking tunnel.

Scotts Bluff National Monument Superintendent Ken Mabery says there hasn't been a death at the monument in about 15 years. Mabery says the mood was somber at the park Monday.
