DA: Body Pulled From Charles River Not Missing Boston Grad Student

BOSTON (CBS) – The Suffolk County District Attorney says a body pulled from the Charles River Monday morning is not missing graduate student Jonathan Dailey.

The DA’s office released a statement saying the body was an adult male and after a preliminary investigation, they do not believe it is Dailey.

“It appears to be an older person and we have a tentative ID — which we are not releasing at this time — indicating he is not the missing student,” State Police spokesman David Procopio said in a statement.

“MSP detectives assigned to Suffolk DA will determine circumstances of this man’s death. Nothing readily suggests foul play, but we will leave that to DA to ultimately determine.”

According to the DA, two employees of the Boston University sailing pavilion spotted the body in the water near the BU Bridge just after 8 a.m. Monday. They notified Boston University police, who in turn notified State Police.

Dailey, 23, of North Carolina, was last seen Tuesday night around Gardner Street in Brighton.

He is a second year student at Boston Architectural College.
