UPDATE: Body found in river in Plymouth identified

PLYMOUTH - Officials have identified the body of a man found in a river in Plymouth last week.

Marshall County Coroner Bill Cleavenger said forensic evidence was used to verify the man as John Miller, 52, of Plymouth. Police say Miller had been reported missing earlier in the week.

Several people canoeing on the Yellow River found the man's body on Thursday evening and called officials. Plymouth Police said preliminary results from an autopsy conducted last Friday identified the body as a white male who died by accidental drowning.

Cleavenger said there is no evidence of foul play, but an official cause of death might not be determined for weeks.
