Sheriffs in North Dakota say a dead man has been found in a ditch not far from the Canada-U.S. border on Thursday.

Officers with the Pembina County Sheriff’s Office said a farmer that was working nearby saw the body in a field located roughly a quarter-mile west of the Pembina border crossing just before 1 p.m.

When they arrived, police found the man in a water-filled drainage ditch approximately 20 yards from the border.

According to the release, an autopsy has been ordered, and identification of the man is pending.
