The body of a Texas City teen who fell off an oyster boat in Grand Caillou last week has been recovered.
Capt. Malcolm Wolfe, with the Terrebonne Parish Sheriff's Office Wolfe, told The Courier 19-year-old Rigardo Dominguez, of Texas City, Texas fell overboard about 7 p.m. Thursday in Bayou Grand Caillou.
Wolfe said others on board the Texas-based oyster boat saw him fall and alerted authorities, who searched the water for several hours without luck, Wolfe said.
Deputies said a fisherman spotted Dominguez's body about 1:30 a.m. Saturday while checking his skimmers. The body was found floating atop the water about a mile away from the spot where Dominquez fell in.
An autopsy determined that Dominquez had drowned.
