Metro-East Man Boasted About Prior River Jumps Before Drowning

St. Louis, MO  (KTRS)  A metro-east man who jumped into the Mississippi River and drowned had boasted to friends that he had jumped into the river many times and wanted to do it again.

That’s according to investigators, after 40-year-old Joseph Frazier of Granite City jumped from the Old Chain of Rocks Bridge on September 26th. Authorities say his girlfriend saw him resurface and float a short distance before he went under.

His body was recovered Wednesday near Granite City. The coroner’s office says Frazier had not made any threats of suicide.
