By Patrick Sullivan | March 22, 2018

Police identified the man found dead at the mouth of the Boardman River Tuesday morning.

Herbert John Beaulieu, 45, of Suttons Bay and Bemidji, Minn. was identified as the deceased by a medical examiner at Western Michigan University through comparative radiography, says Traverse City Police Capt. James Bussell.

The preliminary report found no internal or externa trauma. Investigators are awaiting the results of toxicology tests to determine the cause of death, tests that will be available in two or three weeks.

Beaulieu was spotted in the river by a dog walker near the Murchie Bridge at 8:10am. It's unknown how he ended up in the river.
