GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — Grand Rapids police said Thursday they had not yet been able to identify the man whose body was found in the Grand River over the weekend.

Police say they will need to use dental records to find out who he is.

The body was spotted Sunday by fishermen at Fish Ladder Park. Authorities said it had been there for some time and was in “fairly bad condition.”

They say the death does not appear to be suspicious.
