ORIGINAL REPORT:

HOLMES COUNTY, Fla. (WDHN) — The Holmes County Sheriff’s Office is investigating what happened to a body found under a bridge Sunday.

According to the HSCO, the body was found under the bridge at Wayside Park on State Road 79. The body is said to be of a white man, but the identity of the victim will be released later once the family is notified.

Authorities have pulled the cadaver from the water and taken it to the Medical Examiner’s Office to find out what killed him, but so far, the investigation does not show that this was a “suspicious death.”

More information is set to be released as the sheriff’s office makes progress.
