A body was found Monday evening underneath a bridge on Old Highway 70 at Lone Oak Road.
Deputies were dispatched to the bridge east of Durant at approximately 5:45 after someone saw the body of an adult male in shallow water, according to Sheriff’s Investigator Nathan Calloway, who said the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation is handling the case.
The body, which had not been identified at press time, was sent to the Oklahoma Medical Examiner’s Office for autopsy. The cause of death is undetermined, however, authorities have not ruled out foul play.
Authorities were still seeking his identity and additional details were not available at press time, but investigators were speaking this morning with a person who has information about the case.
