    Lincoln County officials are investigating the cause of death for a badly decomposed body
    found Sunday evening four miles north of Prague.

    Lincoln County Sheriff's Deputy Earnie Redford said he received a call about 6:30 p.m.
    regarding the discovery of a body. When he arrived at the site, he visited with the victim's
    mother, who found the body, he said.

    Redford said the mother stated that her son, Thomas Scroggins, had not been seen by family or
    friends for a month. She discovered the 67-year-old's body on the floor of his residence.

    Redford said the case was being investigated as a homicide because the body was so badly
    decomposed. He estimated that the body had been there for nearly a month. Scroggins lived
    alone, Redford said.

    Redford was assisted by Sheriff Dale McNelly, Deputies James Wells, Dennis Rhodes and
    Chester Duncan, OSBI Agent Mike Collins and Deputy Inspector Rick Zimmer as well as the
    medical examiner.

    The case is under investigation.3
