Fridley man, 59, found dead in Mississippi River


Investigators are looking into the death of a 59-year-old man from Fridley after his body was pulled from the Mississippi River Sunday, the Fridley Patch reports.

Anoka County Sheriff's officials say the body of the man -- who was not identified -- was found by two canoeists on the river south of the Interstate 694 bridge about 2 p.m., near Riverfront Park.

The body was in the water for several days and apparently doesn't show any signs of trauma, according to the Sheriff's Office.

Officials don't suspect any foul play, WCCO-TV reports.
