Authorities identify body found under bridge

Authorities have identified the body found under a bridge in Hattiesburg Thursday night.  Forrest County Coroner Butch Benedict says the body of 51-year-old Donald Frederick Webb was discovered lying on a creek bank under a bridge on Roosevelt Street near Highway 49 around 7:30 p.m.  

Benedict says Webb most likely died of natural causes, but he's still awaiting results of an autopsy to determine the exact cause of death.  

He says Webb was homeless, but had relatives living in the area.
