Oroville, Ca—On September 9th, 2016, at 9 a.m., Butte County Sheriff’s Office received a report from California State Parks regarding a fisherman who had located a body in the area of Red Tape Road on Lake Oroville.
BCSO representatives responded to the scene and located the deceased individual face down on the shore. Due to the condition of the body, BCSO representatives were unable to make positive identification at this time. BCSO Investigations Unit is looking into the possibility of the body being that of Stephon Jones, who was reported missing on February 10, 2016.
An autopsy will be conducted next week, and more information will be released as soon as possible.
