UPDATED: Man Found Dead In Santa Clara River

khts_crime_genericA transient whose body was found Tuesday afternoon in the Santa Clara River has been identified as Stephen Sieber, 47.

Coroner’s Office spokesman Craig Harvey said that Sieber’s body was examined today, but the cause of death has been deferred to allow for further tests.

 

Sieber’s body was discovered by a passerby and officials say the rainy weather may have played a part in his demise.

“There is a possibility that weather played into it,” Harvey said, adding that the man had a history of drug use. “Where he was found, there was water around him, but his head and upper body were not underwater.”

At approximately 1:48 p.m. Tuesday, sheriff’s deputies responded to a call reporting a deceased adult male found in the Santa Clara River near Soledad Canyon Road and Camp Plenty Road.  Homicide investigators were on the scene until after 7 p.m.

News Director Carol Rock contributed updates to this story.
