  • Authorities say a body found in the Missouri River in May was that of a 64-year-old man who jumped into the river with his daughter.
    The 29-year-old daughter’s body has not been found. Witnesses said the two, who lived in Peculiar, were holding hands when they jumped into the river from the Christopher Bond Bridge in Kansas City. Fishermen found the father’s body May 10.
    The man’s ex-wife says the father’s body was cremated but won’t be buried until her daughter’s body is found.
    Relatives had reported that the father and daughter battled depression.
