Police give tentative ID on body in Inner Harbor
Baltimore police said yesterday that the body pulled from the Inner Harbor on Wednesday has been tentatively identified as a 41-year-old African-American man from Westminster. Police will not release the man's name until detectives make a definitive identification using fingerprints.
The body was found about 11:15 a.m. floating near the USS Constellation, a popular attraction at Harborplace. Police officers and firefighters pulled the body from the water just after noon, authorities said.
Police said that while a preliminary investigation found no signs of trauma or foul play, an autopsy is expected to determine the cause of death.
