A body was found in a Lawrence County quarry on Sunday.

The coroner has identified the body as Dwight Copper, 59, of New Castle.

Pennsylvania State Police said Copper’s body was found floating in about 10 feet of water at the Kino Quarry in Washington Township.

The coroner believed that Copper had been deceased for about 24 hours before he was found.

Copper had been awaiting trial on drug charges filed last month by Neshannock Township police.

An autopsy will be performed on Monday to determine how he died.
