Drowning victim found



The Enquirer

Kenton County rescue crews recovered the body of a teenager late Wednesday night who drowned in a creek in Taylor Mill earlier in the evening.

Police have not identified the teenager because his family has not yet been notified, but said he was a Hispanic male.

Police said the drowning in Banklick Creek was accidental, but are still investigating to see if there was foul play.

Authorities were dispatched to the creek around 8 p.m. and recovered the body nearly two hours later.

Banklick Creek runs parallel to Church Street in Taylor Mill and is not a recreational area for people to swim in, police said.
