WHITE STONE—A Middlesex woman allegedly jumped to her death Thursday evening from the Robert O. Norris Jr. Memorial Bridge, according to the Lancaster County Sheriff’s Department.
Sheriff Patrick McCranie said the 911 dispatcher received a call around 7:26 p.m. reporting an abandoned vehicle on the bridge.
Law enforcement launched an air and sea search which resulted in the recovery of the body of Teresa Lynn Fletcher, 46, of Warner at 11:14 p.m.
Sheriff McCranie said no witnesses have come forward who may have seen her jump. However, he indicated she left a note.
All lanes of Route 3 across the Rappahannock River were blocked for about three hours as police, the U.S. Coast Guard, Virginia Marine Resources Commission, Virginia Department of Transportation and fire and rescue crews conducted a search.
