The Caddo Sheriff’s Marine Unit has recovered a second body from the Red River. The recovery took place less than 6 hours after the first body was pulled from the river, said Caddo Sheriff Steve Prator.

A jogger noticed the body in the river near the Hamel’s Memorial Park and notified emergency services around 6:25p.m. Deputies assigned to the Caddo Sheriff’s Marine Unit responded and located a man’s body around 7:20p.m. Caddo detectives along with Caddo Coroner’s investigators are also on scene. The two recoveries do not appear to be related.

This investigation is ongoing
