Body found in river not positively identified

The Stockton Record is reporting that the body of the man found in the San Joaquin River hasn’t yet been positively identified.  The report suggests that the family does believe that is Jeremy Lum, but they hope they are wrong.  Link below for the report:

(nice map by the way, I wish I’d thought of that)

There’s also a video report on KOVR

Another report in the San Jose Mercury News presents a conflicting accounts.  The deputies say he was “extremely intoxicated.”  The family says the breathalyzer test showed no alcohol.

The Mercury News story notes a similar case of a mentally impaired man wandering away from the county jail  in 2006.

KCRA adds statements by the sheriff’s dept how they tried to contact his family without success.  (contrast with the early report in the Manteca Bulletin that deputies returned the dog to his home.)
