TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. (AP) - An autopsy has determined that a 43-year-old homeless man who was found dead in a Traverse City river drowned.

The Traverse City Record-Eagle reports (https://bit.ly/1L2NnN0 ) Tuesday from a police statement that Abraham Parker’s body also showed no signs of suspicious injury or assault.

It could be weeks before toxicology and other lab results are available.

Parker told police Sunday night that he thought he saw a body in the water, but officers later determined it was a sleeping bag. His body was spotted Monday morning near the south Union Street bridge downtown.

Interim police Chief Jeff O’Brien said Parker had lived among the city’s homeless for the past several years.
