ENON — A Richmond man reportedly jumped to his death from the Varina-Enon Bridge Sunday, state police said.
An email from state police said troopers were sent to the bridge shortly after 2:30 p.m. Sunday after motorists reported seeing the person jump into the James River. His body was eventually discovered beneath the bridge.
State police said the victim was a 59-year-old man from Richmond. Because the death is an apparent suicide, The Progress-Index is not releasing his name.
