Police identify body found in Mississippi River

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Police have identified a body found floating in the Mississippi River at St. Louis as the remains of a missing woman.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that St. Louis police say the woman was 26-year-old Brandy Jane Mielke of Granite City.

Authorities say the body was discovered shortly before noon Wednesday by a worker on the Eads Bridge linking Missouri to Illinois. Firefighters later pulled the body out of the water near the MacArthur Bridge.

Granite City Police Chief Rich Miller said his department had little information about Mielke, other than that a relative had reported her missing in early May. Authorities have not said how she died.
