Pokemon Go and Death

In a rather unfortunate tale overnight, 19 year old Wyoming USA resident Shayla Wiggins has found a dead body while searching for water based Pokemon near the Big Wind River.

"I was walking towards the bridge along the shore when I saw something in the water. I had to take a second look and I realized it was a body."

Wiggins called the police to report the what she had discovered while playing Pokemon Go. Despite their initial confusion the police department have confirmed the death.

I have but one other question, was she allowed to keep looking?

On a more local front Australian police have taken to social media to warn players against wandering onto roads as well as driving whilst looking for Pokemon.
