STRATTON, Ohio -- Jefferson County Sheriff Fred Abdalla has confirmed a body found in the Ohio River near the W. H. Sammis Plant around 10 o'clock Friday morning is that of a male.
The body was discovered by Sammis security guards who called 911. While the body was removed by Jefferson County authorities, Abdalla said any time a body is found in the Ohio River in Jefferson County, the investigation is turned over to West Virginia authorities.
"I responded along with the Stratton Fire Department," Abdalla said. "The body was recovered; now it's turned over to Hancock County Sheriff's Office for their further investigation. We'll be looking into missing persons."
Two detectives were at the scene to assist officers, along with an ambulance and medical examiner.
