HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (AP) - Police in West Virginia say a dismembered body has been found in the Guyandotte River.

Huntington Police Chief Joe Ciccarelli told media outlets Tuesday that a fisherman spotted a corpse near a boat ramp in the Guyandotte neighborhood on Saturday, and more body parts were recovered Monday.

Ciccarelli says the woman was likely a victim of a violent crime. Her identity wasn’t immediately determined and Ciccarelli says the state medical examiner plans to conduct an autopsy Wednesday.
