KALISPELL (AP) – Flathead County officials are investigating what they’re calling a suspicious death.

The sheriff’s office received a call Thursday from an Oregon woman who said she hadn’t heard from her husband in the Flathead Valley since Christmas Eve.

Deputies found 57-year-old Stewart Nuss dead. Sheriff Mike Meehan says he suspects foul play. Nuss’ body was taken to the state crime lab in Missoula for an autopsy.
