An 82-year-old woman jumped to her death off the Mermentau Bridge on US 90 this morning, according to Jeff Davis Parish Sheriff's Office spokesperson Commander Christopher Ivey. "Witnesses at LEEVAC Shipyards observed the woman jump from the bridge and alerted deputies to the location," Ivey said.

When deputies arrived, they found the woman's vehicle parked on the top of the bridge and recovered her body from the river a short time later. Her body was taken to Matthews Funeral Home.
