LOGAN, Iowa (AP) — The cause of death of a 5-year-old boy found in a western Iowa ravine has not yet been released. An autopsy on the boy’s body was completed yesterday but the Iowa medical examiner’s office is conducting further laboratory tests before a definitive cause is released.
DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Farmers in central Iowa are finding more damage from a weekend storm that passed though Iowa with enough wind to flatten corn plants in some fields and damage trees. Farmers in Dallas County say the early Sunday morning storm brought an end to the recent heat wave but also packed strong wind. No injuries were reported from the storms, which brought a 20-degree drop in high temperatures to Iowa breaking the nearly week-long record setting heat wave.
DAVENPORT, Iowa (AP) — A man mistakenly released on bond after he was convicted of making methamphetamine in a Davenport child daycare center, is back in custody. The Quad-City Times reports Dale Sammy Blumer was returned to jail Saturday. Blumer, who is 35, shouldn’t have been released while awaiting an appeal of his conviction.
DYERSVILLE, Iowa (AP) — The Field of Dreams movie site in Dyersville has taken on the ghostly feel of the Kevin Costner movie shot at the field 24 years ago for an unusual night game. A team of ghost players emerged from the cornfield to play in the first night game at the field on Sunday. About 100 people attended the game at the field featured in the 1989 movie in which an Iowa farmer builds a baseball field and ghostly players from the 1919 World Series return to play.
