Body Found in Ohio River is Louisville Woman

By Associated Press | 

A body found last week along the banks of the Ohio River in southern Indiana has been identified as that of a missing Louisville, Ky., woman.

Floyd County Coroner Leslie Knable tells The Courier-Journal of Louisville that she's identified the body found Friday along the river in New Albany as that of 60-year-old Barbara Mudd.

Authorities believe Mudd may have jumped off the Clark Memorial Bridge last Thursday night. Her car was found about a quarter mile from the bridge in Jeffersonville and that helped police link her to a missing persons report filed by Mudd's husband.

A passing barge worker spotted the body washed ashore near a recycling facility.
