ROCHESTER (KDKA) — An autopsy is planned for Tuesday in the death of a man pulled from the Ohio River.

A boater near Baden, Beaver County, reported finding the man’s body in the water.

Deputy Coroner Wayne Tatalovich Jr. Says it is that of African-American man who was 60 to 75 years old.

The description rules out that it could be a missing man from Ambridge. Kenneth Williams, Jr., 29, vanished more than a week ago with his car turning up in Morgantown.

Tatalovich says it appears the body had been in the water for at least a week. He says they will also contact other counties to see if they have a missing persons case that may match the description.
