Body spotted by boater recovered from Sacramento River

Sacramento police say there are no signs of foul play in the death of man whose body was recovered from the Sacramento River this afternoon.

Sacramento Fire Department crews were called to an area along the river near Riverside Boulevard and Sutterville Road shortly before 4 p.m. after a body was reported in the water. Sacramento Police Department spokesman Officer Doug Morse said the body was spotted by a boater in the area, who called police.

Fire crews recovered the body, which Morse said was that of a adult male.

Morse said the coroner responded and reported that the death did not appear to be suspicious. He said investigation into the cause of death has been turned over to the Sacramento County Coroner's Office.
