Body found in submerged car in Hoover Reservoir

DELAWARE, Ohio (AP) — Authorities say a body found inside a car submerged in the Hoover Reservoir belongs to a 51-year-old Dublin man.

The Columbus Dispatch reports (bit.ly/1tmFR4P) that Delaware County Coroner Mark Hickman has identified the person as Bradley Fawcett. The cause of death will be determined after an autopsy is performed.

Police received a report of a car in the water around 9 a.m. Wednesday. They say a fisherman saw the rear of a vehicle protruding from the water but did not know how long it had been underwater.

Divers with the Genoa Township Fire Department pulled the body out.
