What was considered as a mysterious death of an unidentified was seen floating on the St. John River at the border with Guinea and Liberia early Saturday morning, according to our Correspondent in the County, Joint Security in the County has been informed of the incident.

According to our Correspondent, there has been no information on whether the two countries have provided security to monitor the floating body on the river to avoid further danger to people who are using the water downward for fishing and other useful purposes.

Information gather so far suggest that the drowned man might have being involved with illegal crossing on the River at an unidentified crossing point along the border line.

When the body got released from where it was stocked between a dry tree at the center of the River floating downwards it was observed that the two legs of the man was titled with a stick and face down over the River.

Some community members who live along the border and the water line said act of allowing the body to float on the River might be causing serious harm to the health those of them who are using the water either by fishing, washing and swimming etc.
