WILKES-BARRE, Pa. — A body has been pulled from a creek in Wilkes-Barre.

The Luzerne County deputy coroner tells Newswatch 16 the body of Matthew Crane, 28, of Shavertown, was found in Mill Creek in Wilkes-Barre’s Miners Mills neighborhood late Saturday afternoon.

Rescue crews recovered the body from the water near the railroad tracks along Mayock Street around 6 p.m.

An autopsy is scheduled for Monday.

Both Wilkes-Barre and Plains Township police departments are investigating since the creek separates the two communities where Crane’s body was found.
