Michael Showers Found Dead

Actor Michael Showers, perhaps best known for his work as Captain John Guidry on the HBO series "Treme," was found dead in the Mississippi River early Wednesday morning. Some originally thought the body, found off New Orleans' French Quarter on Wednesday morning, was that of a man who had reportedly jumped off a bridge the day before.

Although an autopsy will be performed to figure out the cause of the mysterious death, according to E! News, the chief investigator for the Orleans Parish coroner’s office estimated that his body was floating in the river for approximately two days.

Showers, who lived in nearby Chalmette, had been reported missing by his girlfriend on Tuesday when he failed to return home after going for a night out in the French Quarter with another man. An autopsy will be performed to determine cause of death, but the chief investigator estimated that Showers' body had been in the water for two days.

"Michael Showers was a fine actor who contributed his talents to our drama in the warmest and most professional way," said David Simon in a statement from HBO Thursday.
