Vermont State Police have identified a body found Sunday in Underhill as that of Brian Russin, who was reported missing last week after he failed to show up at court hearing in Montana.
Russin’s sport utility vehicle was found at a trailhead on Stevensville Road on Friday. On Sunday, Vermont State Police reported that a body had been found in a wooded area nearby.
His death has been ruled a suicide.
Investigators say Russin was planning to go to a recent court hearing in the state of Montana, but never arrived.
This story has been edited to remove the manner of Russin’s death.
