Chicago Police Marine Unit officers pulled a man's body from the the North Branch of the Chicago River at North Avenue this morning, police said.
The body was brought out of the river by officers on the Police Marine Unit's Boat M5 after police were called about 8:15 a.m., Mirabelli said. The body was fully clothed.
The man was later identified as Filipe Jara Valdez, 46, of the 3700 block of West Palmer in the Logan Square neighborhood, according to the Cook County medical examiner's office.
Police said there were no outward signs of violence on the man's body. Detectives were conducting a death investigation, pending the results of an autopsy by the Cook County medical examiner's office.
Police were called to the river after someone called 911 to say that it looked like a body was in the water at the location, said Chicago Police News Affairs Officer John Mirabelli. District officers arrived on-scene and the Police Marine Unit was dispatched to check the report, he said.
