    The Norwich Police Department are still investigating and working on identifying the dead body recovered in Shetucket River off of Hamilton Avenue near its intersection with Palmer Street.

Two citizens fishing in the area directed the Norwich Patrol Officers and members of the Norwich Fire Department to the floating body. Members of the Detective division and Office of the Chief Medical Examiner (O.C.M.E.) were requested to the scene and assisted in the investigation. No foul play is suspected at this time.
    The deceased white male is described as: approximately 6 feet tall, around 200 pounds, approximately 45-60 years of age, brown eyes, medium length brown hair, and medium length brown/grey beard.

    He was wearing tan/khaki cargo shorts, size 34 waist, and an olive colored plaid button down short sleeve shirt, size XL.

    There's a guy missing from upstream, in MA, from earlier in the year when his kayak capsized, but the descriptions don't match.

    I remember this guy Robert Mayer had gone missing from Dix Hills Long Island NY in 2013 and his stats seem to fit and seems to have the same square forehead and the john doe. He just left.

    Norwich Police ID body found in Shetucket River back in July

    Police say Jay T. Oat, 54, of Norwich, was found by two people who were fishing in the area. They called police, and found the body, which appeared to have been dead for a period of time, in the river just off of Hamilton Avenue near the intersection with Palmer Street.
    Police continued to investigate the circumstances surrounding the finding of Oat’s body. Police say no foul play is or was suspected in his death investigation.
