CLEVELAND, Miss. (AP) - Officials have ordered an autopsy after the body of a missing man was recovered from the Mississippi River.
The Bolivar Commercial reports the body of Stephen Miller of Rosedale was spotted Monday by a tow boat.
Bolivar County Deputy Coroner Murrray Roark says the body was sent to Jackson for an autopsy. He says a toxicology report will take six to eight weeks.
Miller was reported missing on Sept. 1 from a towboat. Authorities say other workers told investigators that Miller was last seen about 4:30 a.m. in the galley of the boat.
