Body found in Fall River identified

FALL RIVER COUNTY, S.D. — Fall River County authorities have identified the body of a man found in Fall River earlier this month.

It is the body of 50-year old Edwin Young. Authorities say he was an on-and-off resident of the area and has family in Arizona.

Young’s body was discovered in the Fall River near the Allen Ranch Campground on August 8. Authorities believe it had been in the water for two weeks or less.

County coroner Donna Behrens said there does not appear to be anything malicious in Young’s death.

Results from an autopsy are expected in about a month.
