HOLYOKE, Mass. (WWLP) – Holyoke Police and State Police were in the process of retrieving a car and a body from the Ashley Reservoir Thursday night.
Holyoke Police Lt. Isaias Cruz told 22News someone who was four-wheeling in the area of Bear Hole Road found the car and a man’s body floating in the water nearby at about 8:00 p.m. Thursday.
Lt. Cruz said State Police Crime Scene Services and Holyoke Detectives and the Holyoke Fire Department are in the process of retrieving the vehicle and body, and will determine if this is a criminal matter.
“It’s pretty remote,” Lt Cruz said. “It’s dark, it’s muddy, and it’s really difficult to try and retrieve a car and a body in these conditions.”
