Authorities have identified a body that was found Thursday night on the bank of the Arkansas River in Scott.

The Pulaski County sheriff's office spokesman Lt. Carl Minden said in a statement that the state Crime Laboratory used dental records to identify the body as Malvine Lee, who was the subject of an open missing person investigation. Minden said that there did not appear to be "any overt physical trauma to the body" and no foul play is suspected at this time.

Minden said the body was discovered about 6 p.m. Thursday by two fishermen on the bank of a back inlet at the East Damsite.

This sounds like Pulaski county: it takes and autopsy to determine the sex of the body.

Oldarkie - You have absolutely no idea of what water does to a body. Wish you would research about it and then you would learn something instead of making ignorant comments.
