Body found in St. Croix River near Afton

AFTON - Authorities are working to identify the body found in the St. Croix River near Afton Sunday.

Washington County Sheriff's Commander Brian Mueller says two juveniles saw what they thought was a body in the river and they called their parents who contacted 911.

Mueller say it appears the body had been in the water for a long time and was significantly decomposed. Mueller says the Ramsey County Medical Examiner's office may release more information later today.
