The body of a man found in a field in Batavia Sunday by a resident walking his dog was identified today as Steffan Tyson Carter, 24, of Rochester, state police said.
State police said the man, who appeared to have been slain, apparently had been dead for two to three weeks. He had been reported missing Sept. 29.
An autopsy is being conducted by the Monroe County medical examiner's office to determine the cause of death.
The field is off Batavia-Bethany Town Line Road.
The victim was wearing a sweat shirt and sweat pants but no shoes when he was found.
