Police investigating body found in Rio Grande City canal

Law enforcement are working on removing a still-unidentified body discovered in a Rio Grande City canal Wednesday morning.

The body appears to be male, wearing blue jeans, according to Rio Grande City Police Chief Noe Castillo.

“The embankment is pretty steep so they’re going to have to get the boats to bring it out to a shallow area,” Castillo said. “They’re still not there yet.”

Castillo said they have yet to search for a wallet or determine whether there was any foul play but hope to know more within the next hour.
