Authorities identified a body recovered in Trussville over the weekend as a man reported missing from Margaret in 2012.
According to Trussville police, the body of Michael Chris Carroll, 41, of Odenville, was recovered inside a 2004 Ford F-150 pickup Saturday, Jan. 26, at around 1:30 p.m. Trussville firefighters pulled the vehicle out of the water as part of a training exercise.
Margaret police chief Ricky Parker said his office reported Carroll as a missing person in February of last year. He has already notified his family.
Cause of death was not known at press time. Trussville police said the Jefferson County coroner’s office will make that determination later in the week.
Parker said the investigation into the matter is ongoing.
