The Pokemon Go game leads to discovery of a dead body.

Pokemon Go was released a couple days ago. The captivating augmented reality game as triggered already all kinds of fears of players getting killed on the road or shot dead on trespassing. So far nothing that bad happened. The scariest Pokemon Go experience so far must be that of a Wyoming teenager.

19-year-old Shayla Wiggins found a dead body floating on a river while hunting Pokemon. The Pokemon Go app makes players go places nobody sees the need to go. This is why something like finding a dead body can happen. The police initial statement concluded that the dead body had been less than 24 hours in the water.

Shayla said that she wanted to catch a water Pokemon when she discovered the body in the river. "It was pretty shocking," Shayla said. "I didn't really know what to do at first. But I called 911 right away and they came really quickly," she stated according to KTVQ.

Commenters on the report are less concerned about what happened to the dead person and more concern about if she captured a water Pokemon.

We reported early on that playing Pokemon Go can be dangerous. Trainers forget their surroundings and even watch out for Pokemon while driving in their cars. Trespassing into someones backyard is another life threatening hazard in trigger-happy America.

Pokemon Go is more popular than developer Niantic Labs has anticipated. The international roll-out has been put on hold while the game maker is upgrading their servers. Pokemon Go servers have suffered several outages and games had difficulties logging in.
