Bridge jumper still missing
The search continues for the body of a man who jumped off a bridge as he fled Boaz police last Saturday night. After officers attempted to serve a warrant on 20-year-old Deonta Markey Griffin, he led officers on a high-speed chase through Albertville and Guntersville before reaching the River Bridge on Highway 431 and diving into the Tennessee River. Cadaver dogs were called in Thursday but an all-day search turned up no sign of Griffin. Weather permitting, the Guntersville Rescue Squad was planning to resume a dragging operation today.
