Fox News is reporting that the body of a man dressed in a US military uniform was found in the Euphrates River south of Baghdad may be that of one of our three missing soldiers.
The Houston Chronicle is reporting that an Iraqi official reports that it is one of the three:
Iraqi police found the body of a man who was wearing what appeared to be a U.S. military uniform and had a tattoo on his left hand floating in the Euphrates River south of Baghdad on Wednesday morning, and one Iraqi official said it was one of three missing American soldiers.
The man had been shot in the head and chest, Babil police Capt. Muthana Khalid said. He said Iraqi police turned the body over the U.S. forces.
The US military, however, cannot confirm that the body is that of the three missing soldiers. Even if they could, they wouldn’t publicly confirm it until they contact the families first.
