They were able to determine the cause of death during an autopsy Monday morning.  Now investigators are trying to identify the body.

The discovery was made around 5:20 p.m. Sunday in a wooded area in Ottawa County's Georgetown Township, a short distance from the Riverview Airport.

Investigators on the scene said a pair of kayakers called to report they had found what they thought to be human remains.  A dive team responded, and located the body of a male.
