Man pulled from Chattahoochee ID'd as 44-year-old

PHENIX CITY, Ala. (AP) — Authorities say they believe a man whose body was pulled from the Chattahoochee River on Sunday was a 44-year-old man.

The Muscogee County Coroner's Office said Tuesday the man's identification was developed recently after Phenix City Police found the man's car near the 13th Street Bridge.

Coroner Buddy Bryan tells The Columbus Ledger-Enquirer (http://bit.ly/16IZXvy) that police found the man's car and wallet near the 13th Street Bridge, two weeks after the victim is thought to have drowned.

Bryan said the man's name will most likely be released after the victim's mother has a chance to confirm that the body matches the suspected identity.
