A decomposed body found by deer hunters in Dodge County has been identified as a former Brookfield man who killed himself.

The 56-year-old man was living with his son in Iron Ridge at the time. He was reported missing in September.

Police did not release the man's name because family members had not been told about the identification yet.

Police Chief Charlie Young said the man was apparently trying to run away from a host of financial and legal problems.

His remains were discovered Sunday along a fence line between two farm fields in the town of Hubbard, near the Iron Ridge village limits.
