Kayaker finds plastic bin containing man’s body at Ohio lake


DELAWARE, Ohio (AP) — Authorities say a kayaker picking up trash and debris at an Ohio lake ended up finding a man’s body in a plastic storage container.

The Delaware County Sheriff’s Office says the kayaker called authorities at about 8:30 a.m. Monday to report finding the large bin in Alum Creek Lake and seeing what appeared to be a human leg inside.

Crews worked Monday to recover the bin from the water and confirmed that the bin contained the body of a man.

Officials said the body would be taken to the Montgomery County Coroner’s Office for evaluation. The Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation is taking part in the investigation.
