Troopers from the Missouri Highway Patrol spotted the body about 10 a.m. Saturday near Richard L. Berkley Riverfront Park. Employees at the Jackson County medical examiner’s office found a wallet with Dunn’s identification in a back pocket of the pants on the body. The medical examiner positively identified the body.

Officers were called to the bridge about 2:45 p.m. April 9 because of a person wanting to jump off the bridge, according to police reports.

Officers saw Dunn climb over a fence and hang from the bridge by his fingertips. The officers tried to rescue him by reaching under the fence — through a 2-inch gap — to grab his hands. One officer tried to get Dunn to grab onto jumper cables. When firefighters arrived, Dunn apparently released his grip and fell, hitting a concrete bridge support before tumbling into the water.

The officers saw him apparently treading water while the current carried him away. After traveling about 250 yards, Dunn went under water and did not resurface, police reports said.

Officers found his phone on the bridge. He had called 911 and talked with call takers before officers arrived.
