Man's body pulled from the Charles near the Mass. Ave. Bridge; foul play not suspected

State Police report recovering the body of an 80-year-old Newton man from the Charles River just east of the Massachusetts Avenue Bridge Tuesday morning.

State Police say a dog walker reported the body floating near the Boston side of the river around 8:30 a.m.

The State Police Marine Unit subsequently moved the victim’s body onto the shoreline from the water. Boston EMS personnel determined he was deceased. Detectives subsequently visited the man’s apartment in Newton and spoke to persons who knew him.

At this time there is no evidence that the man’s death was the result of a criminal act. The death investigation will remain open pending a cause and manner determination by the medical examiner.
