Authorities searching for a Virginia State University (VSU) student who was swept away during an initiation ritual in the Appomattox River say they have recovered a body.

Chesterfield County Police discovered the body on Wednesday morning, in the same area where the body of another VSU freshman was recovered on Monday.

Marvell Edmonson and Jauwan M. Holmes were swept away by the rapids during what police have described as part of an initiation involving the group Men Of Honor.

Edmonson's body was identified on Tuesday. Officials have not yet positively identified the body found today.

Four men affiliated with Men Of Honor have been charged with hazing
