Four men are currently jailed for the murder of a Wichita man, whose body was found last week.

The body of 34-year-old Shawn M. Lindsey of Wichita was found in some brush near K-96 and Hillside last Wednesday. Two utility workers made the discovery.

Lindsey was last seen alive by his girlfriend at a west Wichita business Friday, January 11. Police believe he was killed later that evening, then dumped at K-96 and Hillside.

Officers arrested two men early last weekend and two others late Sunday night. Two of the men are twin brothers.

Police believe Lindsey knew all four men, and had formerly worked with two at a machine shop. Lindsey had been unemployed when he was killed.

Two other men are being sought for questioning, but so far have not been located by police.

All four are currently being held at the Sedgwick County Jail.
