    I just saw this on the news this morning..

    "Council Bluffs Police Officers and fire and rescue personnel responded to the call around 1 pm. The person is a white male, 25-40 years of age, 6' to 6'2", stocky build and approximately 220 lbs. He has strawberry blonde hair, with mustache and scruffy beard. He was wearing a t-shirt that had the name "St. Joseph's University Alumni" on it. He also had tatoos on his left arm and right hand with names on each.

    Authorities report that it appears the subject has been in the water for 7 to 10 days and have not been able to make a positive identification at this time."

    37% of students at St. Joe's come from within the state of Pennsylvania. If this guy is a St. Joe's alum, there seems to be a good chance he was originally from Pennsylvania. Many students also come from New Jersey.
    Maybe we should start looking for missing men from the PA-NJ-NY area (or originally from those areas). Even if the man just got the shirt at a second hand store or something, these seem to be the most likely areas where one would find such a shirt.

    I think that University could be located in Indiana.

    St. Joseph's College is located in Indiana (http://www.saintjoe.edu/) but St. Joseph's University is in Philly.

    ETA: There's also another St. Joseph's College in Brooklyn, NY.

    I wonder if he was in town for RAGBRAI (Register's Annual Great Bicycle Ride Across Iowa)? If that's the case, he could be from anywhere. I'm actually in Iowa right now, and I believe RAGBRAI started this year in Council Bluffs, around July 20. Someone feel free to correct me if I'm wrong. I'm not super familiar with it (I'm a bad former Iowan), but RAGBRAI is a big bike ride across Iowa, stopping in a different town each night. It's a pretty big event with riders from all over the country (and probably the world really).

    "Officials identified him as 39-year old Andrew T. Edwards, who was a transient. His last known address was at the Open Door Mission, in Omaha.

    Authorities say they are continuing to wait on autopsy and toxicology results to try and determine how he died. On Saturday, officials said it didn’t appear foul play was involved in the man’s death."
