The body of a Marlinton man was discovered at the site of a motorcycle crash that occurred sometime between 7 p.m. Monday night and 7 p.m. Tuesday night.
The crash site is on Route 92, approximately one-quarter mile north of the intersection with Route 39.
Sergeant Glenn Galloway of the West Virginia State Police was dispatched to the scene of the accident Tuesday evening at 7 p.m., where he discovered the body of Robert Francisco, Jr., of Marlinton.
Nearby was a crashed 1998 Harley-Davidson Sportster motorcycle belonging to Francisco.
