Decomposed body found near Coosa River in St Clair County

Wednesday afternoon, police were notified of a badly decomposed body along the Coosa River near Funderburg Bend Road in Pell City.

Investigators arrived and determined that the remains are human, but they were unable to determine the gender and ethnicity.

In January, a person jumped from Stemley Bridge Road above the Coosa River, never to be found.

Wednesday, a decomposed body was found in the area near the bridge, but the coroner's office and police cannot confirm the victim's identity and cause of death until an autopsy and other exams.

St. Clair County Sheriff's Department will conduct the investigation.
