Family members are confirming that a body recovered from the Amite River in East Feliciana Parish is that of an 18-year-old boy who went missing early last month.
He's identified as Timmy Daniels of Baton Rouge. He disappeared February 10th from the Scotlandville area, with the coroner saying he died from a gunshot wound, though the circumstances are still under investigation.
Officials say it appears his body had been in the river for a while.
