GILL, Mass. (AP) - Authorities in Massachusetts have pulled a body from the Connecticut River that matches the description of a man suspected of fatally stabbing a college professor, then jumping from a bridge.

The male body was found in Gill on Monday afternoon by Selectman Greg Snedeker and his daughter in the reeds 30 feet from shore.

Police Chief David Hastings says the man was dressed in clothing that fits the description of Tyler Hagmaier, believed to have jumped from the French King Bridge about a mile upstream on May 6.

The 24-year-old Hagmaier is suspected of fatally stabbing his neighbor, Quincy College professor Vibeke Rasmussen, in her Plymouth apartment May 5.

Gill is about 120 miles from Plymouth.

The body has been sent to the medical examiner for identification.
