BOSTON—The body of a 26-year-old Indian-American man, who went missing on May 11th in Boston, has been found in Boston’s Charles River, according to sources familiar with the case. Neither Police Department of Lexington, MA, nor Boston Police confirmed the report.
A statement from the Suffolk County District Attorney’s Office said that a male body has been recovered from the Charles River but did not identify the body.
“The adult male whose body was recovered from the Charles River this evening (May 19) has been identified and preliminary investigation into the death has not revealed evidence of foul play,” the statement said. “The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner will make a final determination as to the cause and manner of his death, but while his death at this point appears to be a non-homicide I don’t expect to release his name.”
Sources familiar with the case, however, said that a body of a 26-year old man has been found in Boston’s Charles River near the Boston University Bridge and Massachusetts Avenue. Boston police also declined to provide any information and referred to Massachusetts State Police.
