Body discovered Thursday evening
MONTGOMERY CITY – The Montgomery City Police Department has identified the remains of a human body found Thursday floating in a lake at the Montgomery County Golf Club. Investigations continued today on the cause of death.
Montgomery City Police Chief P.L. Ahern said today that the body was identified as 57-year-old local resident David Lee Salcido.
Ahern said the body was discovered around 5:45 p.m. Thursday in a lake at the Montgomery County Golf Club.
"We still do not know the cause of death. An autopsy will be performed today sometime, and then it may be a period of time before we know more. The investigation is on-going," Ahern said.
Ahern said the body was originally discovered by a member of the local high school ball team, who notified the grounds keeper and the groundskeeper called 911.
The Montgomery City Police Department is handling the investigation. Ahern said at this time he doesn't anticipate the assemblage of a major case squad.
