This is so scary. A teenager from Wyoming was playing the hit game, Pokemon GO, when she stumbled upon a dead body on July 8! Shaking and scared, she immediately reacted. Read the shocking details here!
Shayla Wiggins, 19, from Riverton, Wyoming, got the shock of her life when she found a dead body on the morning of July 8 when she was playing the game everyone is obsessed with, Pokemon GO. Read the full details below!
It’s safe to assume this is the last thing 19-year-old Shayla was expecting to find when taking a walk by the river. She was playing the fan-crazed game and saw something in the water. “As I looked one way, I noticed that there was something in the water in front of me,” she told BuzzFeed News. “And so I took a closer look and saw it was a body.”
Shayla called 911 upon finding the body and waited near the highway until police could arrive. “I was crying and shaking really bad because it was a very scary situation,” she told the site.
In a Fremont Sheriff statement provided by KCWY News 13 in Casper, Wyoming, police are investigating the death of an adult male. “The death appears to be accidental in nature and possibly that of a drowning. There is no evidence at this time that would indicate foul play. Evidence located at the scene has led investigators to believe the man went into the water at the location he was found,” part of the statement reads.
We wonder if this will change the game in it’s entirety. Pokemon GO became available for smartphone users. The app actually sends people out into whatever location they are at and places Pokemon somewhere nearby in the real world.
The game uses a smartphone’s camera and sensors, as well as location-based algorithms, to put a Pokemon into the real world and the real life of the players. Since it knows where you are, users can travel around to landmarks and other locations in their cities to catch the creatures and train them. That way, as gamers travel around to landmarks and notable locations, they can catch the creatures and then train them. Stay safe, gamers!
