DONIPHAN, Mo. (AP) - Authorities are investigating an unusual drowning in the Current River.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol says the body of 40-year-old Donald Kimbrel was found in the river Saturday two miles north of Doniphan.

A fisherman found this body on the bottom of the river.

The Springfield News-Leader reports Ripley County Coroner Mike Jackson said the man apparently drowned but at this point, his death is not believed to be a suicide.

Jackson said Kimbrel was wearing only blue jeans and had suffered a broken ankle.



The coroner says Kimbrel was not boating on the river and it’s unclear how he ended up in the water.
