JEFFERSON COUNTY – Authorities in Jefferson County have made an arrest after a local fisherman made a horrifying discovery. Human remains underneath a bridge in Perry Township.

The victim was determined to be Chet Allan Haddow, of Punxatawney. Police arrested 32-year-old Michael Christopher Shugars – also a Punxatawney resident. Police claim Shugars shot Haddow and then cut his body into pieces with a chainsaw in a drug deal gone bad.
