Pittsburgh police are trying to identify the body found in the Monongahela River Downtown on Monday.

The black man was between 50 and 60 years old and was fully clothed in a zipped up jacket and pants when a parking attendant spotted him floating near the Mon Wharf parking lot just before noon, Lt. Kevin Kraus said.

There's no indication his death was the result of foul play, Kraus said. It was unclear how long the body had been in the water.

The Allegheny County Medical Examiner's Office expects to conduct an autopsy on Tuesday.
