Body found in Ohio River identified as state man
CHESTER, W.Va. -- West Virginia's medical examiner's office has identified a body found in the Ohio River as a Chester man missing since November.
State Department of Health and Human Resources spokeswoman Marsha Dadisman says the body of 52-year-old Timothy Ralston was identified through dental records.
The Weirton Daily Times reports the body was found in the river April 16 about seven miles downstream from a bridge that witnesses say Ralston jumped from Nov. 20. Hancock County Sheriff Mike White has said Ralston had been involved in a domestic dispute.
