Body found in Red River

Law officers from both sides of the Red River recover an unidentified body Thursday near downtown Fargo-Moorhead. The man’s body was discovered by two canoeists and was pulled out of the river around 5 p.m. near the railroad bridge along Fargo’s Fifth Avenue North. It appeared the body had been in the river for at least a couple of days, said Fargo police Lt. Pat Claus. Authorities are working to identify the man and determine a cause of death. There are no active missing-person reports in Fargo, Moorhead or Clay County.
