HAYTI, S.D.–Hamlin County Sheriff Chad Schlotterbeck says his office is awaiting autopsy results to determine if foul play is involved in the death of a man found inside a home in Hazel.

Forty nine year-old Bradley Loeschke was found deceased in the home Thursday night.

The following day, a search warrant was executed on the home. Schlotterbeck tells KWAT News electronic devices were seized as evidence, and are being examined by the South Dakota Division of Criminal Investigation.

Schlotterbeck says it’s important to note that there is no threat to the general public.

Memorial services for Loeschke will be held Saturday morning at the Munwilder Funeral Home in Milbank.
