Authorities Confirm Body is Missing Walker Man

Authorities have confirmed that the human remains found buried next to a Cedar Rapids home last week are those of a missing Walker man.

The Linn County Sheriff’s Office says the Iowa State Medical Examiner’s Office has positively identified the body as 31-year-old Christopher Bagley. Officials say he was stabbed to death.

Bagley had been missing since December 14th.

Bagley’s remains were found Friday. Deputies and other law enforcement agencies had started searching the property at 4069 Soutter Avenue SE in Cedar Rapids last Thursday.

Authorities have not said what led them to the property. No information on possible suspects have been given.

The investigation continues.
