Body Found in the Rio Grande


The Big Bend Gazette reports that a body was found floating in the Rio Grande near the line between Presidio and Brewster County.
According to Brewster County Sheriff Ronny Dodson, the corpse was observed by deputies who were unable to catch the body floating swiftly by due to high water, murky water conditions, and a muddy river put-in for the park jet boat.
We will have more information at 1 p.m. during Here and Now with Big Bend Gazette’s Publisher John Waters.
