Body Identified From Watershops Pond Drowning

The Springfield Police Department is  confirming that missing teenager Luis Gomez was the body pulled from  Watershops Pond on Monday.  

Family members had previously indicated to  media outlets that the body was Gomez, but police didn't confirm the  fact until yesterday.  

There has been an outpouring of support for  Gomez, including T-shirts with messages on them and candles placed on a  dock where the 17-year-old jumped into the water over the weekend.
