Body found in submerged car

Body found in submerged car

While trying to stabilize a riverbank, construction workers came across a car in the Mississippi off Harriet Island Friday morning with a body inside.

The body and construction workers have not been identified. The missing person’s unit searched its 77 open missing person and runaway cases but found no matches.

The car found was a white sedan that was extensively damaged. It took all day to remove the car from the river.

“I looked in the car. It looked like an airbag, and then I saw the legs,? he said, declining to give his name.
