Be careful if you swim in the Rappahannock River.
A couple walking on the south Stafford side make a gruesome discovery Wednesday afternoon, just after 3:00 p.m. Sheriff's Spokesman Bill Kennedy says they saw a body floating in the water and pulled it to shore, before calling 911. Deputies and investigators arrived at the scene, near Old Mill Park, in South Stafford.
The body is identified as 56 year old Jose Hernandez. His family tells authorities that they last saw him on the 4th of July. His body has been sent to the medical examiner's office for a cause of death.
