[UPDATE] Body Found In Red River
[UPDATE] A body was found in the Red River this morning by the Caddo Sheriff’s Marine Patrol. Deputies are at the Stoner Boat launch. We won’t find out if this is, indeed, the body of the man believed to have been hit by a KCS train and knocked into the river until positive identification is made by the Caddo Coroner’s Office. Stay with 710 KEEL for updates.
[ORIGINAL STORY] They haven’t stopped looking. That’s what Caddo Sheriff’s Spokeswoman Cindy Chadwick says of the sheriff’s Marine Unit, which is looking for a man believed to have been hit by a KCS train and knocked into the Red River last week. “They’re out on the river every day,” Chadwick says. “And they’ll keep looking as long as they believe they have reason to.”
A man’s figure is seen on the railroad tracks over the Red River in video from KCS, but there’s no definite indication the man was hit by the train. “The video does not show that…it doesn’t confirm that,” Chadwick says. “I think [deputies are] gonna go back out today and do some more searching with the SONAR.”
We’ll have more updates on this story as we get them. You can also tune in to 710 KEEL for more information.
