Man's body discovered near Monroe Power Plant

MONROE - The body of an unknown male was discovered yesterday along the Lake Erie shoreline in Monroe County's Frenchtown Township, Monroe County sheriff's detectives said.

There was no identification on the body, which detectives said was "badly decomposed" and appeared to have been in the water for some time.

The Monroe County medical examiner is scheduled to examine the body today to try to determine the man's identity and cause of death.
