More Information Sought on Tug River Body

Two men fishing on the Tug river near west Williamson discovered body floating about 15 feet off the shoreline in shallow water, and once first responders got there they confirmed it was an adult male. The body had been there to long to make a positive ID, and now the state medical examiner's office is conducting an autopsy. The body was found near the spot where a Crab Orchard man went missing Memorial Day weekend, and that's a possible lead being investigated. There's no confirmation the two cases are related, but more information is expected to come once autopsy results are complete.
