Body found in pool ID'ed as missing Wyoming County man

PINEVILLE, W.Va. -- Police have identified a body found in a swimming pool as that of a missing Wyoming County man.

Media outlets report that 49-year-old Chester Stewart's death is being investigated as a homicide.

The Matheny resident was last seen alive Aug. 6, 2011 in Matheny. Police say a house attendant found his body last Friday in a pool at a vacant house between Matheny and Oceana.

Wyoming County Sheriff Randall Aliff says identification found with the body was Stewart's. The medical examiner has not yet made an official identification.

Stewart was one of four people in the Matheny and Oceana areas who went missing last summer.

State Police Sgt. R.A. Maddy says authorities haven't determined whether the cases are connected.
