Body found in river near Wichita park identified as missing seminarian

 | 

Law enforcement officials in Wichita Monday announced that a body found some days earlier in the Arkansas River near one of the city's park was the body of Brian Bergkamp, a seminarian from the Wichita, Kan., diocese.

The Wichita Eagle Daily newspaper reported that a fisherman had spotted a piece of life vest floating in the water with a rosary attached to it. That discovery led to finding the body of the missing seminarian. The coroner on Saturday confirmed it was Bergkamp and his family was given the news first.
