Body recovered in Willamette River near Independence

Posted: Updated:
INDEPENDENCE, OR (KPTV) -

The body of a man who disappeared early last month has been recovered from the Willamette River.

Polk County deputies pulled Marvin Studer's body from the river in Buena Vista, just south of Independence.

The 63-year-old was last seen Sept. 9 at his home, which is within walking distance from the river.

Relatives say it wasn't uncommon for Studer to spend time along the river.

A cause of death is still unknown, but deputies say there was no evidence of foul play.

Anyone with information on this case is asked to call the Polk County Sheriff's Office at 503-623-9251.
