Authorities Confirm Identify Of Body Found In River

The Shasta County Coroner's Office has confirmed that the body found in the Sacramento River Monday was that of a man who jumped from the North Market Street Bridge two weeks ago while running from Redding Police. An angler found the body of 48-year-old Darryl Cunningham submerged just upriver from the Sundial Bridge, and Sheriff's Boating Safety Deputies recovered it. On March 29th, Cunningham made the jump of about 60 feet, and pursuing officers saw him struggling in the 48 degree water as he was carried downriver by the strong current. They lost sight of him when he went underwater and they did not see him come back up. A search that night and the next day was unsuccessful.
