Good afternoon from the desk of Janet Hall. Here are the stories we’re working on for WBRC FOX6 News this evening.

Body found in East Lake Park

Birmingham Police are working to identify a nude body found floating in the lake at East Lake Park this afternoon. All we know at this point is that it is a white man. An autopsy will be conducted to determine the cause of death. We will have the latest at 5.

Lawmakers continue work in special session

State lawmakers are continuing to work on budget proposals to solve Alabama’s budget crisis. The House Ways and Means Committee approved a 25 cent per pack cigarette tax. We’ll have a wrap up of today’s actions in a live report.

Body cams impact complaints

The use of body cams by the Birmingham Police Department and others across the country is having an impact. Citizen complaints about police actions are down significantly. We’ll have the full story at 6.

Those stories and more beginning at 5 p.m. on WBRC FOX6 News.
