Authorities have identified the body found in Columbia last week.
On Tuesday last week, officials received reports of a body floating on Perche Creek near Providence Access. The body was quickly retrieved and endorsed to the medical examiner. After a thorough inquiry, authorities have identified the victim as 39-year-old Orson M. Hager of Columbia. It’s still not clear what caused Hager’s death. Witnesses and those with potentially useful info are encouraged to contact authorities as soon as possible.
People can be killed under widely varying circumstances, and authorities are always expected to exhaust all means to identify causes so that all involved parties can find closure. It’s in these situations where aggrieved parties should have access to necessary resources that can help them cope and recover, including guidance from legal experts.
