The Sacramento County Coroner’s Office has taken custody of a body found Sunday in the Sacramento River west of Natomas.
Sacramento firefighters assisted in the recovery of the body about 5:30 p.m. Sunday near the 3100 block of Garden Highway. It was not clear if the badly decomposed body was that of a man or woman.
The body appeared to have been in the water for quite a while, according to a Fire Department spokesman.
