Body Found in the Klamath River Last Friday May Be Related to Stolen Vehicle Found in Trinity River Earlier
A body was found in the Klamath River by Young’s Bar off Hwy 169on Friday, June 30. About 5 p.m. a “person fishing found the body and pulled the body onto his boat,” said Lt. Dennis Young of the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office.c “The fishing person went to the nearest residence and called [finding the body] in.”
Young said that law enforcement was investigating a possible connection with the reportedly stolen vehicle located in the Trinity River on June 26. “We’re working with CHP,” he said. “It is possible. Right now we’re trying to chase down some leads.”
The body belongs to an out-of-state resident, Young said. It has been identified and the next of kin notified. However, two of the person’s grown children still need notification so the name is not yet released.
“Nothing indicates foul play,” Young said. An autopsy is scheduled for Wednesday, July 5.
