Detectives respond to body near Pittsburgh wharf



PITTSBURGH — City police detectives and officials with the county medical examiner’s office have responded to a body found floating in a river near Pittsburgh’s Mon Wharf parking lot.
The body was reported shortly before noon today along the parking area, which lines a half-mile section of the north shore of the Monongahela River downtown.
Officials at the scene were not commenting. They had tethered the body so it would not float away until they could remove it from the river.
The gender and identity of the body were not immediately released. Autopsies are routine on such bodies, though it was not immediately clear when the Allegheny County medical examiner’s office would conduct the post-mortem examination.
