OHIO TOWNSHIP, Pa. — Authorities say a man found dead in a waterway in western Pennsylvania has been identified as a New Jersey man.

But it’s not yet known how he died or how he ended up in the Ohio River.

Authorities say 48-year-old Drew Camoosa, of Little Egg Harbor, was pulled from the Ohio River near the Emsworth Locks and Dams around 10:30 a.m. Monday. Emergency responders had gone to the scene after a 911 caller reported seeing the body face down in the river.

Camoosa was pronounced dead at the scene a short time later. It’s not known how long he may have been in the river before he was discovered, and a cause of death has not been determined.

Allegheny County police are leading the investigation.
