ST. JOSEPH, Mo. (AP) – Investigators say the body of a man found near a submerged car was that of a St. Joseph man.

The body of 48-year-old Ezequiel Contreras-Vasquez was found Tuesday in a pond south of St. Joseph in an area known as Banker’s Crossing.

Patrol Sgt. Jake Angle says the water near U.S. 59 has no formal name and formed when a field took on water.

When troopers first arrived they found the vehicle in chest-deep water but did not see the body. Contreras-Vasquez’s body was found about two hours later.
