Body Found In Ohio River

INDUSTRY (KDKA) — Authorities are trying to identify a body found in the Ohio River in Beaver County.

Workers on a barge near the Montgomery Lock and Dam near Industry found the body around 1:30 p.m. Tuesday.

“We received a call shortly before 1:30 this afternoon that the workers here in Industry Terminal had found a body in the water,” Industry Police Chief Garold Miller said. “The body’s been recovered. It appears to be the body of a white male. Other than that, we don’t know anything at this time.”

Police are checking missing persons reports in the area, but don’t have much to go on at this point.

Miller said the body was taken to the morgue and they won’t know anything until the Beaver County Coroner completes an autopsy.
