OH - Eric Flory, 29, Defiance, April 2008 - Presumed Drowned
9 April 08
The Defiance Sheriff's Office along with friends and family continue to search the Auglaize River in boats for a man who went missing after trying to swim across it. A friend he was with waited 15 hours before reporting what happened to police.
Police said 29-year-old Eric Flory and his friend 28-year-old Jorge Tenorio decided to try to swim across the Auglaize at 2 A.M. on Tuesday morning. Tenorio quickly got out of the water, but police believe Flory continued to try to make it across. After no one heard from Flory later that day, Tenorio called police around 5 P.M. on Tuesday.

That story sounds fishy (no pun intended)
1. Why were they swimming in a river in Ohio in April? Its been in the 70s but the water can't be any warmer than the 40s.
2. Why were they trying to swim across a river at 2am?
3. Why did he wait 19 hours to report it?
It is a tragedy but I just don't understand...his family is in my prayers.

My guess: alcohol.

The body of a missing Defiance man was found over the weekend. The Crescent News is reporting a resident found Eric Flory's dead body floating several feet from the shore of the Auglaize River. Flory had been missing since April 8 when he and a friend got in the water. His friend quickly got out, but Flory said he was going to swim to the other side. The Lucas County coroner should release his autopsy sometime this week.
