September 13, 2014

Rural Marshalltown - Volunteers searching for Kevin Kroener, a 52 year-old rural Marshalltown man who has been missing since last Saturday, September 6, 2014, discovered the body of a man in the Iowa River north of Marshalltown, IA.

The searchers notified the Sheriff's Office of the discovery at approximately 5:00 PM Saturday evening (9/13/14). The body was later recovered with the assistance of the Marshalltown Fire Department rescue boat and transported to the Marshalltown Medical & Surgical Center morgue. Marshall County Medical Examiner, Dr. David Bethel, will cause the body to be submitted to the State Medical Examiner's Office for an autopsy.
