The Shasta County Coroner's Office identified the body found in the ACID canal in Anderson Monday as Tony Hufford. Hufford, 29, of Anderson was identified by family members.

Law enforcement responded to a call of a body floating in a canal near Anderson High School just before 3:00 p.m. They were not able to retrieve the body so the Shasta County Sheriff's Office dive squad was called to assist. The dive squad was able to retrieve the remains around 4:00 p.m.

An autopsy will be conducted Tuesday by the coroner’s office today.
