Last weekend, it was reported that officials were called to the area of Great Falls in Lewiston to investigate reports of an apparent body floating in the water in the Androscoggin river.
After arriving, crews were able to remove the body from the water and transport the victim to the Office of The Maine State Medical Examiner. This morning, WGME 13 is reporting that while the State Medical Examiner is awaiting toxicology results before releasing a cause of death, officials have in fact released the deceased's name.
Police say the body was identified as 39-year-old Isar Coleman of Lewiston.
According to WABI TV 5, the body of an unidentified man was pulled from the Androscoggin River near Great Falls over the weekend.
Lewiston Police report that that they received phone calls about a possible body floating in the river on Saturday afternoon. Police responded to the scene and were able to retrieve the body.
Police say they do not know how long the man's body had been in the water and, at last check, they had not yet been able to identify the person.
According to WMTW News 8, area law enforcement agencies are currently looking into missing persons cases in the area to see if they can line up a match to the body.
Additionally, an autopsy is to be performed this week by the Maine State Medical Examiner's Office.
