Army pvt. bound for Hood jumps from NY bridge

DOBBS FERRY, N.Y. The mother of Army Pvt. Elizabeth Lynch-Gonzalez, who jumped from the Tappan Zee Bridge early Thursday, said her daughter was upset that her deployment to a Texas military base had been moved up to today.

The mother said her daughter, who was 19 and 2009 graduate of Lakeland High School, was greatly upset when she found out Wednesday that her deployment order for Fort Hood had been moved up to today.

The comments of the mother, Mary Ellen Lynch, came moments before police confirmed that a body found in the Hudson River a few miles south of the bridge was her daughters.

The body washed ashore in Dobbs Ferry shortly after noon Thursday, 10 hours after the young woman jumped from the middle of the Tappan Zee Bridge up river in Tarrytown.

The young woman was the second military member this year to jump from the bridge. In March, the body of Wolf Aristilde, 22, of Spring Valley was found on the banks of the Hudson near Yonkers after he apparently plunged from the Tappan Zee on Jan. 3.
