GILL, Mass. (AP) — Authorities have pulled a body from the Connecticut River in Gill that was dressed in a similar manner to a murder suspect thought to have jumped from an upstream bridge earlier this month.

The male body was found in Gill on Monday afternoon by Selectman Greg Snedeker and his daughter in the reeds 30 feet from shore.

Police Chief David Hastings says the body was dressed in clothing that fits the description of Tyler Hagmaier, believed to have jumped from the French King Bridge about a mile upstream on May 6.

The 24-year-old Hagmaier is suspected of fatally stabbing his neighbor, Quincy College professor Vibeke Rasmussen in her Plymouth apartment May 5.

Gill is about 120 miles from Plymouth.

The body has been sent to the medical examiner for identification.
