TAOS, N.M. (AP) — The Taos County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the discovery of a body in the Rio Grande Gorge near Taos.
The Taos News (http://bit.ly/OoAGiR) reports authorities hadn’t yet recovered the body Tuesday.
Undersheriff Ed Romero says authorities are still looking into whether the incident was a suicide.
Romero says tourists found a bag on a viewing platform on the Rio Grande Gorge bridge on Sunday that contained a passport, wallet, rental car keys and various electronics including an iPhone.
Deputies say the body was reported Monday morning by a worker at the bridge who spotted it about two miles downstream.
