MT. MORRIS - The Waushara County Sheriff's Department is searching for a murder suspect.
Investigators say the body of a 50-year-old man was found Wednesday morning.
Robert Kasun of rural Wautoma was found in a room at a motel in Mount Morris.
The owner of the Mt. Morris Motel says Robert Kasun moved into room four of the ten room motel on Sunday. Ken Lange says when he was plowing snow from the motel's driveway Tuesday night he noticed something strange.
"The door to the room was wide open and I thought that was unusual," said Lange.
So Lange says he went inside.
"And I just happened to be walking by so I went in there and he just looked like he was passed out."
Lange says he didn't know Kasun and didn't want to disturb him.
"I closed the door and closed the refrigerator door because that was left wide open and then I left and I didn't think nothing of it."
The Waushara County Sheriff's Department was called to the room at 10:30 Wednesday morning. Lange says a man who helped Kasun move in on Sunday found him and called 911.
"That's when they said he was dead and it was a surprise to me."
Kasun's death is being investigated as a homicide. Waushara County Sheriff David Peterson would not comment on the investigation.
"It's already the talk of the town, people are wondering what's going on, especially for the safety of neighbors because it's quiet out here," said Sandra Bishop who lives next door to and managers the motel.
A quiet broken by a murder, investigators are now trying solve.
