The identification of a body found along the West Fork of the Little Kanawha in Calhoun County has not been determined by the State Medical Examiner's office.

State Police Sgt. J.E. Skidmore said the body was "badly decomposed," with nothing much more than bones left, according to the Charleston Daily Mail.

Skidmore said the body was found by an area fisherman last week, who was unsure whether the remains belonged to a human or an animal.

Skidmore told the Charleston paper that police think the body is probably that of a 25-year-old male who lived in the area and often camped around Adam-Altizer Road, near where the remains were found.

"It is a suspected suicide," he told the newspaper, with local sources telling the Herald a .410 shotgun was found nearby.

"Foul play is not suspected," said Skidmore.

Skidmore told the newspaper that the ID could take anywhere from one month to a year.
