Body and Vehicle Recovered from River

  The body of Christopher R. Anderson, 29, who was reported missing by the Sugar Creek Police on the 23rd of September, 2014, was found in a vehicle that was submerged in the Missouri River near La Benite Park on December 19, 2014. 

  The Sugar Creek Police Department worked with the Missouri State Highway Patrol Underwater Rescue to locate the vehicle, and his name was not released until February 13.  Although police would not give any details about Mr. Anderson or the cause of his death, they do not suspect foul play in this incident.

  The Missouri Search and Rescue K-9 (MoSAR), Lee's Summit Underwater Rescue, the Sugar Creek Fire Department, the Jackson County Medical Examiner's Office, and the University of North Texas also assisted in the investigation.
