Southeastern Michigan authorities have confirmed that a body found in a debris-clogged portion of the fast-flowing Clinton River is that of a 47-year-old man who disappeared while kayaking.
Police in Macomb County's Shelby Township say Oliver Dixon III parked his vehicle at the River Bends Park boat launch in Shelby Township on Thursday. It's about 20 miles north of Detroit.
Police say the Sterling Heights man planned to kayak to Heritage Park in Utica but never arrived. A kayak and the body were spotted Sunday in a logjam, located between the River Bends Park boat launch and Heritage Park.
Macomb County Medical Examiner Dr. Daniel Spitz said Tuesday that he's waiting for the results of toxicology results to rule on what killed Dixon.
