Police in Daviess Co. working to identify male body found in Ohio River
Officials say it's not clear how long the victim's body was in the water.
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Detectives with the Daviess County, Kentucky Sheriff's Office are asking for help in identifying a man who was found earlier this month in the Ohio River.
Officers recovered the man's body near the Natcher Bridge on May 11, according to a release.
Police say an autopsy found injuries and trauma on the body to suggest foul play. The investigation is being handled as a homicide.
Authorities say the person was a white male and about 5 feet, 7 inches tall. Officials do not have any information concerning the man's age.
Investigators say the man "had a past traumatic injury to his face." Officials also say it's not clear how long the victim's body was in the water.
The release also says that Indiana State Police also recovered the body of Sarah Ipock a few miles upriver on the same date the man's body was found. Authorities say it's believed Ipock's death was related to foul play. Police say the cases may be related, because Ipock and the man's bodies were found a short distance from each other.
Anyone with information about the man's identity is asked to call the Daviess County Sheriff's Office at 270-685-8444.
