Body found on the east side of Craig

Craig Daily Press Staff Report

Juveniles found the body of a middle-aged male by the bridge near O.P. Bar & Grill sometime during the day Tuesday, according to Sgt. Corey Wagner, from the Craig Police Department.

The Police Department is not releasing any names at this time, adding that it’s going to be notifying the family.

“We had an unattended body, but we’re not releasing more information until the family has been notified,” Wagner said.

O.P. Bar & Grill owner Delbert Knez said that officials were on scene all afternoon, making bar patrons nervous.

“If it was near the establishment, yes, I’m concerned,” Knez said.

The Craig Daily Press will update the community as more information becomes available.
