Body Found In Des Moines River Identified?

The Associated Press is reporting that a person walking on a Southeast 14th Street bridge spotted a body in the Des Moines River.

The article says that police and firefighters went to the river this afternoon where the body was found among debris in the water. It was reportedly the body of a man.

The article refers to another one by The Des Moines Register, which says that the authorities responded at 1:30 p.m., and that the body was taken to the Polk County Medical Examiner’s office.

Iowa Online has a list of names of people in Des Moines who have recently gone missing, and the reports say that the body is that of an adult.

The site shows a Craig A. Lynn, 51, who had gone missing on May 21; a Nghia V. Nguyen, 42, also from the Des Moines agency and on the same date; a Demarco M. Strode, 41, also reporting missing with the same agency and date; and a Leonard E. Dawson, 60, who last made contact on May 15.
