SHREVEPORT, La. (AP) - The Caddo Parish Sheriff’s Marine Unit has recovered a body of a man who authorities believe jumped from the Texas Street Bridge on Thursday.

Sheriff Steve Prator says Deputy Casey Jones located the body around 9 a.m. Sunday, about one mile south of the Texas Street bridge, which crosses the Red River, and just north of the railroad bridge.

Jones had been on river patrol about an hour when he spotted the body in the water along the bank.

The body has been turned over to the Caddo Parish Coroner’s Office.

The case is being investigated by the Shreveport Police Department.
