Fremont County Coroner Dr. Dorothy Twellman confirmed she has identified a body found Thursday May 17, in the Arkansas River.

Twellman said she identified the body as that of a Ulysses, Kan., woman who jumped from the Royal Gorge Bridge on May 8. The body was found by rafters in the river near Tunnel Drive.

The 23-year-old woman is believed to have jumped from the bridge May 8. Her vehicle had been placed on a national database as an “attempt to locate,” along with a requested welfare check for the woman by Kansas authorities.

Searchers discovered a point of impact below the bridge and evidence that her body had rolled into the Arkansas River.
