LENOIR COUNTY, N.C. -- We now know the name of the man whose body was pulled from the Neuse River on Saturday.

State troopers were called to U.S. 70 near Skinner's bypass in Kinston where the body of Richard White was found.

In December, an 18-wheeler was found in the river after running off U.S. Highway 80. Divers searched for the man's body for several days without any luck.


The cause of death is not yet known.
