Local authorities are still investigating the discovery of a body floating in the south fork of the Shenandoah River on Friday.

The body — listed only as a “male” — has not yet been publicly identified, according to a March 28 post of the Facebook page of the Page County Sheriff’s Office.

The post indicated that the body was found after the Page County Emergency Center received a call at 10:37 a.m. on Friday, March 27. The body was found near the dam along Route 602 (East Point Road) just outside the town limits of Shenandoah in southern Page County.

The sheriff’s office post indicated that the investigation into the incident is ongoing. Local authorities are “working with the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Manassas to make a positive identification of the body and to determine the cause and manner of death,” according to Saturday’s post.

The sheriff’s office was assisted last week by the Shenandoah Police Department, Shenandoah Fire Department, Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries and Page County EMS.

The post by the sheriff’s office indicated that “no additional information will be released, as this is an active investigation.”

Efforts on Monday to reach investigators with the Page County Sheriff’s Office and the Shenandoah Police Department were unsuccessful.
