I was just on the phone with the Medical Examiners office. They said that the coroners office has the information, as in a license, but are not sure if it is him or not.

An autopsy is being performed this morning on a body pulled from the Ohio River Thursday night in Perry County.

Indiana Conservation Officer Mark Farmer said the body was spotted lodged in drift shortly before 7 p.m. near Tobinsport, Ind.

Authorities pulled it from the waters and transported it to the Kentucky State Medical Examiner's Office in Louisville, Farmer said, where it was undergoing an autopsy this morning.

Identification was found on the body, but Farmer declined to reveal any details about it. He said he did not know if it matched that of a missing person.

The body had decomposed and appeared to have been in the water for some time, Farmer said.

I am wondering if this might be Brian Shaffer, even though it's been a year?

I would hate if it were him, but it would give the family closure. :(
