County Coroner Confirms Body found in Yakima River is Jesse Moran

Posted: Updated:
YAKIMA, Wash.- The Yakima County Coroner confirmed Monday that the body found in the Yakima River is that of the missing rafter Jesse Moran.

Coroner Jack Hawkins said they used dental records to identify Moran.

Nineteen-year-old Moran was on a rafting trip with friends last may when the raft overturned near the Wapato Dam.

Alberto Ramirez also died in the rafting accident.

Family and friends say they thought it was Moran because he was wearing the same shoes as the body found near the river.
