With snow and heavy rains earlier this year, the man could’ve entered the water north of the Dayton region and carried down the river. Investigators were unable to determine if there were signs of foul play when they recovered the man’s body.
“We don’t know what caused this,” Beavers said. “We don’t any circumstances behind this incident other than that we found a body.”
With spring rains moving into the region and more people out on the water as the weather warms, Beavers reminded people to bring a friend and use caution when getting into the water.
“Always make sure someone knows where you’re at so that if something bad or unfortunate happens help can get there right away,” he said.
Dayton police are leading the investigation. We will continue to update this story as information is released.
