Police: Body found in Mississippi River in St. Paul Park
A body was found Wednesday morning in the Mississippi River in St. Paul Park, authorities said.
The body was located in a side channel south of Hidden Harbor by a Department of Natural Resources official working on the river, St. Paul Park police Chief Mike Monahan said.
The Washington County Sheriff's Office was called on scene to investigate. Authorities used a sheriff's boat to access the body on the river shortly after 10 a.m.
Monahan said there are no reports of missing people in St. Paul Park. It would be possible for a body to float downstream from somewhere farther up river, he said.
