Help sought to ID body found in river BY CINDY SCHROEDER The Cincinnati Enquirer Boone County authorities are hoping Kentucky's forensic anthropologist anthropologist can help them identify human skeletal remains found in the Ohio River Friday. A fisherman in a boat found the body in water at the river's edge, Boone County Police Lt. Jack Banks said. He said the person's sex was not known. No clothing or other identifying evidence was found at the scene. "We'll contact Dr. Emily Craig, the state forensic anthropologist, on Monday," Boone County Coroner Coroner Don Stith said Saturday. "She can analyze (the body) and tell us its sex, race and approximate age and weight." The remains were taken to the Kentucky state medical examiner's facilities at St. Luke Hospital East. Lt. Banks said the fisherman contacted authorities about 8:45 p.m. Friday after marking the area where he found the body about 500 feet downstream from the East Bend Powf ' Plant.
