Officials seek to ID body found in Brazos River

Posted: Updated:

ROSENBERG, Texas (AP) - Investigators are trying to identify a man whose body was found in the Brazos (BRAZ'-uhs) River by two kayakers.

The Fort Bend County Sheriff's Office says the body was discovered Tuesday afternoon near Rosenberg, about 25 miles southwest of Houston.

Authorities are not sure how long the body was in the river. Investigators did not immediately say whether they suspect foul play in the death.

An autopsy has been ordered.
