Body recovered from vehicle in Pierre river
PIERRE, S.D. (AP) — Authorities say a body has been recovered from a vehicle submerged in the Missouri River in Pierre.
The South Dakota Game Fish and Parks Department says it notified Pierre police of a submerged object resembling a vehicle near Down’s Marina on Tuesday.
After the vehicle was located and recovered, authorities found a body inside and determined the vehicle appeared to have been submerged “for an extended period of time.”
An autopsy is scheduled for Wednesday to identify the subject and determine the cause of death.
