WINOOSKI, Vt. (AP) — A Vermont police chief says he believes a man considered a person of interest in the death of a 28-year-old woman is dead.

Winooski Police Chief Rick Hebert says there is video surveillance showing Keith Gaston jumping headfirst into the rain-swollen Winooski River on Nov. 1.

Hebert says Gaston can be seen resurfacing briefly before disappearing underwater. Investigators have determined that Gaston did not come out of the river and the focus now is on recovering his body.

Police says Gaston is a person of interest in the death of his fiance, Hannah Keyes. She was found dead in her Winooski apartment Nov. 2, but the investigation has not determined the cause or manner of death.
