Body Found in Cherokee County

A man's body has been recovered from a submerged truck in Cherokee County. The truck was found in the water of Mud Creek, by a bridge on CR 4905.

Authorities were called after a passer-by noticed the truck. It was pulled from the water late Tuesday afternoon. A body, that DPS presumes was the driver, was found soon after, about 100 yards away up the creek.

The body has been sent to Dallas for autopsy in hopes of identifying the man.
