FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) The man whose body was pulled from the St. Marys River earlier this month has been identified.
Just before 7 p.m. Oct. 3, a person on the Hale Avenue bridge spotted a body floating in the water and called 911. First responders arrived and found the body and called in the Fort Wayne Fire Department Water Rescue Team to recover it.
