Update June 16, 2017: The bishops of Cameroon determined that Bishop Balla's death was in fact a murder, not a suicide, based on autopsy results. Read that story here.
The body of Cameroon Bishop Jean-Marie Benoît Balla, who has reportedly committed suicide, has been found, African sources have reported.
The Bishop of Bafia in Cameroon had been declared missing earlier this week when his car was spotted on Wednesday near the Sanaha river, near the nation's capital, Yaoundé.
A note was reportedly found in his car, which read: "Do not look for me! I am in the water."
