Forensic dentists have identified a body pulled from the Muskegon River.

Twenty-eight-year-old Andrew Hodges of Rodney disappeared nearly two years ago after jumping into the river while fleeing police.

The Pioneer reports that Hodges was last seen alive on November 27, 2005, when he jumped into the water from a city bridge while running from police officers from Big Rapids and Ferris State University.

They were chasing him because he failed to pay for some fuel that he pumped at a gas station.

A canoeist discovered Hodges' submerged remains over the weekend in Mecosta County's Big Rapids Township. His body was identified this week. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
