Officials find body under Sunshine Skyway Bridge

ST. PETERSBURG — Florida Highway Patrol troopers Saturday found the body of a woman who jumped from the Sunshine Skyway bridge earlier in the week.

Authorities originally went to the scene after a caller falsely reported a car going off the bridge into the bay, FHP spokesman Sgt. Steve Gaskins said.

In the process of trying to find the car, which they later learned did not go into the bay, troopers recovered a body from the rocks below the bridge.

"We believe it is a female who jumped from the bridge earlier this week," Gaskins said.

The woman was not identified.
