Columbia, SC (WLTX) - Richland County Coroner Gary Watts is asking the public's help to positively identify and find the family of a man found dead in a river last month.

Watts says the person has tentatively been identified as 41-year-old Leroy Pollard Jr.

His body was found April 27th in the Broad River Canal. Investigators believe he's the same person who jumped off the Broad River Bridge at Interstate 20 on April 22nd.
