Foul play suspected in death of Tuscumbia man

Good Friday evening to you all. This is what we're working on for WAFF 48 News at Ten.

We're following new developments in the case of a missing football coach who turned up dead in the Tennessee River today. Brioni Rutland had been missing since Tuesday.  Police were investigating the discovery of a lot of blood on the Old Railroad Bridge. They then spotted a dead man in the river below and identified him as Rutland. So far they're saying it does look like he died of foul play.

The scramble to get Boeing to move a new 777x assembly line to Huntsville is up against some stiff new competition.

And pretty much everybody is counting down the hours to kickoff when Alabama and Auburn go head to head in the Iron Bowl tomorrow. We'll see what happened as the players went to Montgomery, and look at the preparations for this big, big game, on WAFF 48 News at 10.
