Kayaker Discovers Human Remains On Alum Creek Lake

Jun 28, 2021

Authorities say a kayaker picking up trash and debris at Alum Creek Lake found a man’s body in a plastic storage container.

The Delaware County sheriff’s office says the kayaker called authorities at about 8:30 a.m. Monday to report finding the large bin in Alum Creek Lake and seeing what appeared to be a human leg inside.

Crews worked Monday to recover the bin from the water and confirmed that the bin contained the body of a man. Officials said the body would be taken to the Montgomery County coroner’s office for evaluation. They confirmed that the body was that of a white male. The Sheriff's office has used a drone to aid in the search for evidence, and to track the investigation.

The Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation is taking part in the investigation.
