“Possible” Suicide Off Don Pedro Bridge

Tuolumne County Sheriff´s Department investigators are looking into a possible suicide yesterday after the body of a man was found beneath the Highway 120 bridge over Don Pedro Reservoir. CDF fire captain Jeff Allen says the body was found shortly after 3 p.m. about 20 feet from the water.

Allen says a passer-by noticed a car parked on the bridge became suspicious, then looked over the bridge railing and saw the body about 100 to 120 feet below.

As of last night, authorities had not released the man´s identity.

A Sheriff´s Department dispatcher said the case was being considered a “possible” suicide but that had not been confirmed as of early last night.
