Body Found In Creek Identified

St. Petersburg, Fla. (970 WFLA)-The body found in a St. Petersburg creek has been identified.  

Saturday afternoon a bicyclist discovered the body of  40-year-old Melissa Higgins in the creek just west of the Jet Jackson Recreation Center. 

Police believe she had been in the creek on 28th Street South for more than 24 hours.  No cause of death has been determined, but police say the death is suspicious. 

Her mug shot was taken when she was arrested last November for driving with a suspended or revoked license.
