Fisherman Finds Body of Unidentified Woman in Lawrence County

Authorities recover the body of a young woman in the Black River Saturday.
The Lawrence County Sheriff's Office confirms authorities recovered the body of a young woman in a treetop in the Black River near Old Davidsonville State Park.

Sheriff Jody Dotson says a fisherman discovered the body in a treetop floating in the river and called police around 5:40pm Saturday.

The sheriff has contacted the state crime lab and is waiting to have the body delivered for an autopsy and identification.

Since March, crews have been searching Lawrence County for Sidney Randall, a 14-year-old who went missing from Walnut Ridge. The sheriff cannot confirm whether the body is connected to Randall's disappearance at this point in the investigation.
