Second Body Pulled From Gunnison River

Another body is pulled from the Gunnison River just five miles down from where authorities recovered the body of Linda Johnson on Monday.

The identity of the person is not being released at this time pending an autopsy by the Mesa County Coroner's Office.

Search and Rescue Teams recovered the body at around 1:00 p.m. Wednesday afternoon.

Officials had been searching the river looking for 40–year–old Danny Carpenter who was the last person seen with Johnson before she died.

Officials say it's unclear whether the body they recovered today is that of Carpenter.
