COLLINSVILLE (AP) — The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says a body has been found in the trunk of a car that was pulled from the Caney River near Collinsville.
OHP Trooper Leonard McMillan told reporters that a truck driver reported the car in the river about 9:30 a.m. Friday and that an initially search of the car while it was still in the water found no one inside.
However, McMillan says the body was discovered in the trunk after the car was pulled from water.
No name or gender of the body was released.
McMillan said it appears the car was intentionally driving into the river.
