Gruesome sight

Nice thing for the students to see.

No more games of hangman for a while.

Body found hanging from bridge
By Roger Croteau - Express-News

A girl on a school bus spotted the body of a man hanging from a railroad bridge over the Blanco River in San Marcos early this morning. She used a cell phone to call her mother, who called police.

San Marcos authorities are calling the man's death an apparent suicide. Justice of the Peace Joanne Prado ordered an autopsy.

Officers removed the body from the bridge in the 1800 block of River Road. Police did not release the man's name, but said he was a 20-year-old San Marcos resident.
