Kayaker Body recovered in Marion County

A member of Marion County Rescue reported Wednesday afternoon (May 9, 2018) at @ 5:37 p.m. that the body of missing kayaker Anthony Brown was recovered from the river near the Old Mill Dam.

The Marion County Sheriff’s Department was notified who, in turn, contacted the Coroner’s Office. Police records indicate the Rescue Squad cleared the scene shortly after 7:30, with the Sheriff’s Dept. still on the scene at that time.

Brown had been missing since Sunday evening after falling out of his kayak when it went over the dam.

Members of the Marion County Rescue and Taylor County Rescue Departments were among those who were involved in the search.
