Officers met the reporting persons along the Llano River in Badu Park. Officers were told that the subject had been in a state of depression and went out alone for a walk. Since this was not an unusual habit for the subject, no one went with him.
When his roommates did not hear from him within the hour, they became concerned. They went to where the man normally walks and could not locate him. Officers responded to a call along the northside of the Llano River in Badu Park and conducted a search for this subject. He was not found. Since the man was in a reported state of depression, officers pinged the subjects cell phone. The phone pinged on County Road 412 which was several miles away from the search location. Officers continued the search in the City and went out to County Road 412 and were unable to locate the man.
At approximately 11:53 a.m., visitors walking over the Llano River Bridge observed what appeared to be a body below the bridge. Llano Police officers, EMS and LVFD were called and responded. The man reported missing was discovered dead on-scene. Authorities reported that the man appeared to have jumped from the bridge and died from injuries received from the fall. The circumstances did not appear to be suspicious, according to Chief Michael Scoggins. The incident remains under an active investigation. Personal information on the deceased man will not be released until family notification has been completed. More information will be provided when available.
