Strollers sight man's body in Inner Harbor


The body of a black man was found last night in the Inner Harbor between the Light Street and Pratt Street pavilions at Harborplace and was sent to the state medical examiner's office for autopsy and identification, police said.

Detective Chris Bieling of the homicide squad said a man and his wife were walking along the Harborplace promenade about 10: 25 p.m. when he spotted the floating body and called police. A police marine unit removed the body from the water.

Bieling said the body appeared to have been in the water for several days. He said there were no obvious signs of foul play.
