Authorities in Plaquemine located southwest of Baton Rouge are working to identify a body pulled from the Mississippi River.

The remains were spotted early yesterday morning not far from the city's ferry landing.

Investigators say the body is not that of Alvin Dixon, an inmate who jumped into the river late last month after allegedly fleeing custody and killing a former girlfriend. They say the tattoos on the body don't match Dixon's.
