GLENWOOD SPRINGS, Colo. — Authorities have identified a body found in the Colorado River on Christmas Eve as that of a 28-year-old Oklahoma man.

The Post Independent reports ( ) that Joshua Patrick Henry, of Bartlesville, Oklahoma, was found in the river Saturday. Garfield County Coroner Robert Glassmire says an autopsy conducted Tuesday found Henry had a stab wound in his chest, and his death is being investigated as a suicide.

A sheriff’s office investigation determined Henry was a suspect in the theft of a pickup truck on Dec. 19. The vehicle was later found crashed into a fence off Interstate 70.

Deputies used search dogs and were led to the river’s edge, where they found the suspect’s wallet, clothing and a bloody knife.

Glassmire says Henry has family ties in Colorado Springs.
