Teen found dead in rural ditch

From Staff ReportsApril 9, 2006 

A teenager was found dead in a ditch in a rural area early Saturday afternoon, according to the Wake County Sheriff's Office.

Investigators are trying to figure out how Taylor James Klein, 18, of Fuquay-Varina, died, said Phyllis Stephens, spokeswoman for the sheriff's office. She said the sheriff's office does not plan to say whether Klein's death was suspicious until investigators determine the cause.

Stephens said police found the body after a motorist on Sweet Springs Road, four miles west of Fuquay-Varina, reported that a man was lying in a ditch.
