UPDATE 2-24

Gadsden County deputies have recovered a body from the Ochlockonee River in Gadsden County.

Our cameras were the only ones rolling when the body was removed from the water.

Major Shawn Wood says,"Right now, we don't know what we have, so it's one of those things were when we figure out what we have we're going in making sure they preserve evidence if there is any, but we are really trying to figure out what we have now, so it's going to take a little bit.

Investigators won't say if or when an autopsy will be performed on the body. We will continue to follow this story and update you.

    It was the missing woman from tally.And they have arrested someone.Ya'll act like the deputies don't know how to do anything and are on here arguing about it and they already know who it is and have someone in custody.

    anon- Found the video you were talking about on there. The police just arent giving out any information thats why they could neither confirm nor deny about an autopsy. That is pretty standard in this situation. More than likely they will do one but they just can't say anything right now

    I didn't hear where they said that they might not do and autopsy. Depending on how bad the decay of the body is it might not be possible or even worth it or it could be and obvious COD, like a cracked skull where and autopsy might not be necessary as opposed to a strangulation.

    Anno @11:04 - It's up to the Medical Exam. to decide if an autopsy is done. LE presents the facts and then they will decide. One a case like this it will be a 99.999% chance one will be done.

    MAY GOD TOUCH THE HEART OF THE FAMILY OF THE LOVE ONE WHO WAS FOUND IN THE RIVER. IT'S SO SAD THAT PEOPLE HAVE TURN TO SUCH ACT AS THIS.

    Steven while we have your ear - what did they mean when they said they might not even do an autopsy? Why would an autopsy not be done in a suspicious death?

    Kim that was a lower case L but since you didn't know that it said LEON. Now is that better. You better go back to pre-k. And yes police and sheriff's are allowed to cross over if there is a suspicion that the cases are connected. And as far as correct grammar why did "even" have a place in your question?LOL!

    Tallahassee Police Department was there because the body that was found is part of an on going investigation in to the disappearence of a woman in tallahassee, where TPD suspected foul play. Just because a body is found in one jurisdiction doesn't mean the homicide occured there.
