The discovery of a pick up truck submerged in roughly seven feet of water in the Swan Creek area of Saginaw County Wednesday, July 31 also led to the recovery of a deceased adult male in the
driver’s seat.

County Sheriff William Federspiel says an autopsy will be needed to determine not only a cause of death, but also how long the body was in the water. Federspiel added authorities found the man’s driver’s license in his wallet, but were still  trying to locate next of kin before releasing a name.

The site where debris from the truck was discovered by a kayaker was near the 4500 block of S. Miller Rd., south of Swan Creek Rd.
