Salisbury police officers and fire crews yesterday pulled the body of 25 year-old Rodney Stevenson Junior from the Wicomico River’s eastern prong that runs through the Salisbury City Park.

Police Chief Barbara Duncan told reporters that his family had last seen him leave his Ohio Avenue home at around 8:30 a.m. yesterday.

She said a 911 call came in at round 9 o’clock that said a body had been seen floating in the water.

Duncan said Stevenson was going to a location on East Main Street…but did not specify where.

 

 

The two pedestrian bridges in Salisbury City Park could be closed for the rest of the summer.

Teresa Gardner, director of Public Works, said city inspectors have found significant signs of deterioration on the Snow Hill Road pedestrian bridge during an inspection this month.

The Salisbury Daily Times reports the inspectors said they found the wood had warped and shrunk.
