May 12, 2018

FRESNO, Calif. (AP) — San Joaquin Valley authorities are trying to determine the identity of a body found in a canal in Fresno.

The Fresno Bee reports a man searching for recyclables in the canal instead snagged a human hand Friday night.

Police Lt. Jennifer Horsford says that led to discovery of a dead person stuck in the water.

Horsford says the body appeared to have been submerged for some time, making it difficult to determine if it was that of a man or woman.
