Body found near Red River; no foul play suspected

FARGO – Police say the body of a man was found near the river downtown here late Thursday night, but foul play is not suspected.

Lt. Joel Vettel said some citizens reported the body to police after discovering it in some bushes by the Red River around 7 p.m. on Thursday.

The citizens had seen the man alive on Wednesday and went back to check on him Thursday near the 200 block of Main Avenue downtown when they found him deceased.

Vettel said the man appears to have been homeless and in his 40s, but police are still investigating his identity.
