Local man’s body found


Police found a local man dead in his apartment, according to a report from the Riley County Police Department.

Steven Hill, 54, of 300 N. 5th St., Apt 4H, had underlying health issues before his death, said Lt. Herbert Crosby Jr. of the RCPD.

Hill was discovered when police came to the apartment on a welfare case since they had not seen him for a while, according to the report.

Crosby said the death does not appear to be of foul nature, but that the coroner’s office has requested an autopsy.

A local man was arrested Thursday in a domestic case, Crosby said.

Johnny Gene Holle, 64, of 3921 Kaw Road, was charged with aggravated battery, criminal restraint and theft, according to another RCPD police report.

Holle was arrested at 6:25 p.m., and his bond was set at $25,000.
