Body found in East Manchester


Police are investigating after a body was found in the Codorus Creek in East Manchester Township.

A family of kayakers discovered the body Tuesday afternoon near the Starview Sportsman Club and called 911. Officials believe the body had been there for several days. 

“A dead body in a creek is always suspicious, but at this point in time, we don’t know if we’re talking about a homicide or an accidental death,” Northeastern Regional police Chief Bryan Rizzo said.

Police said it could be several days before the person is identified. 

They said they do not have reports of anyone missing in the area.
