Sunday police are investigating what caused a car to drive or roll into the St. Joseph River.
Sunday morning they found a man dead inside the car.
It happened in the Baugo Bay in Osceola.
It’s in the 700 block of Vistula Road.
The man who died has been identified as 31-year-old Houston Rayburn of Mishawaka.
A passerby found the car around 7:30 a.m.
Water rescuers and emergency responders pronounced Rayburn dead at the scene.
“It seems as if the car drove into the water I think it was sort of the indication we certainly have had instances in the past where people have wither been unfamiliar with this area or have gotten disoriented and wound up driving into the river straight down this street,” said Assistant Chief William Thompson, St. Joseph County Police Department.
Police think the vehicle went into the water around 2 a.m.
