Detectives of the Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department are investigating the cause of death of a man whose body was pulled from the Savannah River Thursday morning.

At approximately 8:30 a.m., Downtown Precinct patrol officers responded to the 200 block of east River Street, where passersby discovered the body of an unidentified white male floating in the river near the dock.

Marine Patrol removed the body from the water. Detectives are working to identify the body. Forensics and the Coroner’s Office also responded to the scene. The Georgia Bureau of Investigation will perform an autopsy to determine the cause of death. This is an ongoing investigation.
