Police trying to identify body found in Radford

RADFORD — Radford police are investigating whether a body found off West Main Street in the city July 4 may be that of a Pulaski man who was last seen in Radford nearly a month earlier.
Pulaski Police Department Detective Sgt. Mike Hudson said the body has been sent to the medical examiner’s office in Roanoke, but the identification has not been completed.
Police are trying to determine whether the body is that of Thurston Sutphin, who was last seen in the Radford area June 7. Sutphin left from his Pulaski residence about 9 a.m. that day.
According to a press release from the Radford City Police Department, the body was discovered behind 113 West Main St., near the Sonic restaurant, around 7:30 p.m. Friday.
The press release goes on to say that Radford authorities are working with agencies from other areas “in an effort to quickly identify the victim.” Foul play is not suspected.
No other information is being released.
Pulaski police said in June that Sutphin may be disoriented and in need of medical attention. They also thought he may have trouble walking.
