COWLITZ COUNTY, WA (KPTV) -

Deputies with the Cowlitz County Sheriff’s Office are investigating a body found along the banks of the Toutle River late Sunday evening.

According to the sheriff’s office, a man was riding an ATV in the area along the banks of the river around four miles north of Castle Rock around 9:00 p.m. when he discovered the body and called deputies.

Detectives from the sheriff’s office along with the county coroner responded to the call and performed and preliminary investigation of the scene.

Investigators determined the body had not been at the location for a long period, noting that the area was remote and not easily accessible.

Because the investigation is still in its early stages, investigators are not releasing other details but did say that they did not believe residents should be considered for their safety.
