 Sheriff Zach Jacobsen has released information Thursday, Aug. 8th, 2019 on the discovery of a body on Wednesday, Aug. 7th.

On August 7, 2019, the Washington County Sheriff’s Office was dispatched to the 11000 block of Radio Station Road for a deceased person. Upon the deputy’s arrival, it was confirmed that the person was deceased. I requested the Missouri State Highway Patrol Division of Drug and Crime Control to assist with the death investigation. The scene was processed, and the body was transported for an autopsy to confirm the identity, and cause of death.

No further details will be released at this time.

I would like to thank the Washington County Coroner's Office, the Missouri State Highway Patrol, and the Potosi Fire Protection District for their assistance.

Sheriff Jacobsen

Radio Station Road is located just North of Potosi of Highway 21 on the East side of the road in the area of the Potosi Livestock Barn. The investigation is ongoing at this time.
