JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - The westbound lanes of Bay Street at Laura Street reopened Tuesday afternoon after being closed for close to two hours as police were investigating a mysterious death.

Originally reports said that a dead body was lying in the road near a parking garage.  When police arrived they found a dead man who they said may have thrown himself off of the building.

Drivers in the area were being diverted north onto Ocean Street or south onto Main Street while officials concluded their investigation.

Traffic was back to normal as officials continued their investigation into exactly what happened.
