EDMOND, Oklahoma -

Police have released the name of a man who died Monday night while walking his dogs near an Edmond church.

Some kids were playing basketball just before 8 p.m. at St. Monica's Catholic Church when they heard dogs barking in the soccer field next to the basketball court. When the kids took a closer look, they could tell there was something lying next to the dogs. One of the kids immediately called his mother.

The woman arrived at the church about 10 minutes later. As she walked closer, she realized there was a body in the field. She called 911.
