Body in pickup found submerged in Mon River

Pennsylvania Trooper Kevin Gabrovsek is shown in California, Pa., after scuba divers unexpectedly found the body of Denis DeRenzo in a submerged pickup truck Saturday.

CALIFORNIA, Pa. – This is the first time a body has been found in a submerged vehicle in this neck of the Monongahela River that I can recall during the decades I have lived along this waterway.

As a writer for the Observer-Reporter newspaper in Washington, Pa., I'm interested in talking to people who knew this victim of an apparent homicide, Denis DeRenzo, who lived in Baldwin Borough and also in Van Voorhis, Pa. If you knew him, please write to sbeveridge@observer-reporter.com

Eerie photo, Scott. It's amazing it took so long to find the submerged truck in the river.
