Authorities try to ID body found at river

Struthers

An autopsy is planned for this morning on the body found on the bank of the Mahoning River.

Dr. Joseph Ohr, medical examiner with the Mahoning County Coroner’s Office, said that the body of a man was found Saturday afternoon by two men fishing at the Mahoning River.

Ohr said the fishermen were in Struthers on the northern shore of the river and saw the body when they crossed a bridge.

“He had washed up on the shore, and the two fishermen were on the north shore and one came across the bridge,” Ohr said. “There was a fallen tree that was partially in the river, and beneath the tree was the body, face-down.”

The fishermen called Struthers police, who are investigating along with the coroner’s office.

Ohr said the body was so badly decomposed that an age or race couldn’t immediately be determined, but the man has short, dark-brown hair and no facial hair.

An autopsy, full X-ray and dental examination will be performed today, Ohr said.
