Indiana Conservation Officers are investigating a body that was recovered Sunday evening from the White River.

At approximately 8:06 p.m., first responders were dispatched to the area of the White River and State Road 13 for a male subject found submerged in the water.

Charles E. Bond, 37, of Elwood, had been jumping from a homemade elevated platform into the river.  It appears Bond struck an object while jumping and did not resurface.

A kayaker located Bond and he was recovered by first responders.

This incident is still under investigation and an exact cause of death is pending autopsy results.
