Davenport Police are treating the body that was found in the Mississippi River near Lindsay Park in Davenport as suspicious unless autopsies prove otherwise. That's according to Davenport Police Captain Dale Sievert. But, investigators say there were no visible signs of trauma on the body and they aren't ruling out suicide.
Police are still working on identifying the man, who investigators believe to be between 40 and 50 years old. The body has been in the river for awhile so Police are having a tough time identifying the man. They say they're relying on fingerprints and records of missing persons to help.
Davenport PD says they don't believe the body went into the river at Lindsay Park, but further upstream.
Police say they got the call of the body in the river shortly after eight Tuesday morning. A jogger running along the river saw the body and called emergency crews.
