COLUMBIA — The body of 20-year-old Adam E. Keith was found on the side of County Road 132, east of Fulton, early Friday morning, according to a news release from Sheriff Dennis Crane of the Callaway County Sheriff’s Department.

Deputies discovered Keith's body after receiving a report of a figure lying alongside the road. Investigators have interviewed three people who claim to have seen the man jump out of a moving vehicle on County Road 132, and officials suspect that alcohol or drugs were involved, the release said. No arrests have been made at this time.

The Boone and Callaway County medical examiner performed an autopsy but has not yet made a statement regarding the cause of death. Representatives for the Callaway County Sheriff’s Department were unavailable for comment.
