CORAOPOLIS, Pa. — Authorities have identified the body of a man found in a golf course pond at a country club in western Pennsylvania, and they say his death may be related to a crash reported earlier that damaged a utility pole.
Officials said 50-year-old Roy Sanders of Coraopolis had been reported missing a day before his body was found Friday by a groundskeeper at Montour Heights Country Club in Allegheny County.
Moon Township police said a car also found in the pond matched parts found near a crash reported Sept. 5 near a church that damaged a utility pole. Sanders was last seen Sept. 4.
Capt. Gregory Seamon said investigators believe the car went into the church parking lot, through the woods and into the pond. Township police are still investigating.
