ASOTIN, Wash. (AP) - An eastern Washington state sheriff says a decomposed body with no head found in the Snake River will be sent to Seattle.

Asotin County Sheriff John Hilderbrand tells the Lewiston Tribune ( that the body found last week is possibly a male. The person’s identity and cause of death are unknown.

The body was found Tuesday near Chief Timothy Park west of Clarkston.

Authorities found a pair of men’s size-9 tennis shoes on the feet, and the denim jeans on the body were size 36 with a 30-inch inseam.

The sheriff’s office says it has contacted other law enforcement agencies in the region to see if there are any missing person cases.
