UPDATE: Homicide manner of death for body recovered from Wabash

TERRE HAUTE — Homicide has been ruled the manner of death for a man found Sunday in the Wabash River.

Vigo County Coroner Dr. Susan Amos told the Tribune-Star at noon that the body recovered is that of a middle-aged white male. His body had been in the river “for a few days,” she said.

No indentification is yet available but is being investigated, Amos said. An autopsy was conducted this morning. The cause of death was not being released pending the investigation.

The Vigo County Sheriff’s Department now has primary jurisdiction in the investigation into the body recovered Sunday evening.

VCSD Chief Deputy Clark Cottom requested that the public notify police of anyone who has been missing in recent days by calling either 812-462-3226 or Crime Stoppers at 812-238-STOP.

Terre Haute Police were the initial investigating agency and responded to the scene south of the Interstate 70 river bridge after two fisherman reported seeing the body in the river at about 8:30 p.m.

Indiana Conservation Officers and Sugar Creek Fire Department recovered the body from the water.
