Police investigate death of man found under bridge

Officers were dispatched to the Grand Boulevard bridge, just north of First and Grand, near Berkeley Riverfront Park at 7:05 this morning on a deceased male. Upon arrival, officers observed a white van on the bridge that had apparently struck the wall. No one was in the van, and officers observed the body of a white man directly below the bridge.

The man has been identified as 48-year-old Delbert L. Starks Jr. of Kansas City, Kan.

Detectives are investigating the incident as a "death investigation" at this time.
