Ravenswood Body

The identity of a man whose body was found this week in the Ohio River may soon be released. Two fishermen found the body this past Monday near the Ravenswood Bridge in Jackson County.

West Virginia State Police hope fingerprints taken Wednesday by the State Medical Examiner's Office in Charleston will confirm the man's identity.

A State Police trooper says several family members already have been notified.

It's still not known if foul play is a factor. State Police are examining evidence found in the man's car, to determine how the man drowned.
