CHESTER, W.Va. (AP) - Authorities in West Virginia are investigating a woman's body that was found in the Ohio River near East Liverpool, Ohio.

Hancock County Sheriff Ralph Fletcher tells media outlets that workers at the East Liverpool dry docks discovered the body on Wednesday afternoon near the Jennings Randolph Bridge.

The body has been sent to the medical examiner.

Fletcher says his department is handling the investigation because most of the river is in West Virginia.
