Bodies of Two Brothers Pulled from Ohio River

WICKLIFFE, Ky. (AP) – Kentucky officials said the bodies of two brothers who had apparently been boating have been pulled from the Ohio River.

The Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources said in a statement that conservation officers were investigating what led to the deaths of 60-year-old Raymond Sheffer of Sweetwater, Texas and 63-year-old Wendell Sheffer of Metropolis, Illinois.

The statement said officials were originally called Saturday morning after a damaged 17-foot aluminum boat was found floating upside down on the river. Hours later, an angler found one body and a towboat operator found another.
