Second Body In a Week Found Floating Near Washington DC's Tidal Basin

The body of a man was pulled from the Potomac River near the Roosevelt Memorial early Thursday morning, CBS News reports.

Authorities say a US Park Police officer discovered the body floating in the Tidal Basin around 1 a.m.

The identity of the man was not immediately know. Authorities only say the deceased is an adult male.

An autopsy is scheduled to be performed to determine how the man died.

Thursday marks the second time within a week a body has been discovered in the area. Police found another man’s body floating in the river on Saturday morning.

It is unclear whether the two cases are connected.
