Body Discovered in Creek in Iron County

(Vulcan) An investigation is underway in Iron County to determine the identity and the cause of death of a person found in a creek over the weekend.

Remains of the person were discovered Saturday at a location between Annapolis and Des Arc.

Sheriff Roger Medley provides more information.

The St. Louis forensic expert will hopefully find out more about the remains such as gender, age and a name.

Police say right now, initial evidence did not indicate that foul play was involved.

The sheriff says they do have a reported missing person from the county but he says investigators will not speculate that this individual is their missing person from Iron County.
