Grant County rescue investigating possible body found in well

Posted: Updated:

GRANT COUNTY (KATV) - Authorities are working to pull what they believe to be a body out of a well in eastern Grant County.

Residents first noticed the cover was off the well in some woods on their property a few weeks ago. When they returned Tuesday, they threw a hook down the well to start cleaning it out and told authorities they thought they hooked a body.

At last check, Grant County Rescue was still on the scene working to retrieve it from the well. Again, they are still working to confirm that it is a body. Even if it is, investigators do not suspect foul play. If it is a body, officials will send it to the State Crime Lab to determine cause of death.

Sheriff Ray Vance told Channel 7 News on the scene he plans to call a press conference later today. We will bring you the latest at that time.
