A body discovered in the Clark Fork River on Tuesday, August 5, now appears to have been tossed in the river after being assaulted and shot.
On Tuesday, the body of a man was found near Grant Street in the Orchard Homes area and was guided downstream so it could be inspected and taken to an autopsy lab. The state medical examiner later determined that the injuries on the body were not consistent and that the body appeared to have been assaulted before being shot.
"The decedent has been identified as Gilbert George Barry, also known as 'Jack,' said Missoula County Sheriff's department spokeswoman Paige Pavalone. "He was a 36-year-old man originally from Pennsylvania, and he was a recent transient to the Missoula area."
Pavalone said that the Sheriff's Department had already located individuals who had knowledge of the assault and were working with the Missoula County Attorney's office to get arrest warrants.
Many of the particulars in this case could not be described because of the ongoing investigation, but Pavalone said it was clear that the man was shot in Missoula County, but could not release specifics about where the shooting occurred.
