County law enforcement on Sunday were working to investigate the circumstances behind the death of an individual whose body was found in the Cannonball River.
Morton County Sheriff Kyle Kirchmeier said deputies received a call around 11:30 a.m. Sunday of a body in the Cannonball River, near the mouth of the Missouri River.
Deputies found the body of an unidentified male in the water and were on scene until about 3:30 p.m., Kirchmeier said.
Kirchmeier was unable to provide the identity of the individual as law enforcement were still working Sunday evening to notify family members. He said further details would be provided in a press release on Monday.
