A body found beneath the U.S. 278 bridge Sunday will be sent for an autopsy as the Cullman County Sheriff's Office continues to investigate.
The deceased was identified as Richardo Saucedo, 28, of Jacksonville, Florida, said Cullman County Coroner Jeremy Kilpatrick.
Officials said Saucedo was in the area with family for a visit at the time of his death. Kilpatrick was called to scene at 1:45 p.m. Sunday.
Vess Creek runs underneath the bridge, but Saucedo's body was found on the shore. The distance from the top of the bridge to the ground is about 150 feet.
"We've gone ahead and asked for the autopsy to help with the investigation," Kilpatrick said.
