On Tuesday, February 5, 2019, at 3:10 p.m., Central Precinct Officers responded to a report that a deceased adult male had been found on the concrete landing near one of the east pillars of the Morrison Bridge.

Officers noted the circumstances at the scene could be suspicious-in-nature, so members of the Detective Division's Homicide Detail and Criminalists with the Forensic Evidence Division responded to the scene.

The investigation is continuing. An autopsy will be conducted tomorrow by the State Medical Examiner to determine the cause of death.
