Police recover body of Ky. man swept away by flood current

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -

Police say they have recovered the body of a man who was swept away in flood water in the Louisville area.

According to WHAS-TV (http://bit.ly/1HhBdi4 ), Prospect police said Friday they have found the body of 67-year-old Stephan Miller.

Authorities say Miller was using a canoe to get to his car, which was stuck in flood waters in the Transylvania Beach neighborhood, when he lost his footing and was swept away by the strong current last week. Water in that area had risen to 14 to 15 feet because of the recent snow thaw and rain.

A dive team recovered the body from standing water that remains in the area.

An autopsy is complete but officials did not release a cause of death. Information from: WHAS-TV, http://www.whas11.com
