Rescue crews found the body of a Corvallis man who slipped into the Metolius River while fishing on Monday.  Jefferson county authorities say they located the body yesterday at 2:30 p.m. about 2 miles downriver from where he fell.  62 year old Isamu “Sam” Furuichi was a sushi chef from Corvallis and was vacationing in the area for the holiday weekend.  His wife witnessed his fall into the frigid and swift water.  He wasn't wearing a life jacket and sheriff's officials say that could've saved his life.
