Body under bridge ID'd as missing Huntington man
HUNTINGTON, W.Va. -- Huntington police have identified a body found under a bridge as that of a missing man.
Lt. John Williams tells media outlets that investigators believe 31-year-old Randy Paul Martin II died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound. No autopsy will be conducted.
The Huntington man was last seen Dec. 10.
A towboat operator discovered Martin's body on Monday as the vessel approached the 17th Street West Bridge spanning the Ohio River.
Williams says Martin's vehicle was found Friday in the parking lot of a nearby restaurant.
