“On Saturday a man climbing the pole said a man was lying in the river but nobody take it for anything,” said Lenore Nelson, a cousin of McBarnette.

Nelson said McBarnette, a father of two, suffers from epilepsy and might have had a seizure leading to his untimely demise in the river.

The police are investigating the matter.
