Law enforcement officials have pulled the body of an adult male out of the Sacramento River this afternoon.
The body was spotted this afternoon by a fisherman near the Redding Rodeo grounds. Redding Police and Shasta County Sheriff’s deputies responded to the boat ramp behind the posse grounds just before 12:40 p.m.
The Redding Police Department initially responded to the report, but the Shasta County Sheriff’s Office took over the investigation and launched a boat to search the river.
The body was released to the Shasta County Sheriff’s Office.
Investigators said the body appears to have been in the water for over a week, but no further information will be released until the family of the man has been identified.
