YAKIMA COUNTY -- Yakima County Sheriff's Deputies say a body has been found in a canal near Granger.

It was found close to Highway 22 and S. Track Road. The body was discovered by a Bureau of Reclamation employee. 

Officials say the body appears to have been in the canal for several months and was in the advanced stages of decomposition. 

It appears to be that of a male, but beyond that nothing could be determined at the scene.  Further examinations will be performed by the Yakima County Coroner to establish identity and cause of death.
