BPD: Body found in water near the Fens

BOSTON (WHDH) - Boston Police are investigating after a body was discovered in the water near the Fens on Sunday.

The body was found in the Muddy River near Boylston Street. Dive teams were on the scene Sunday, closing the area off while police investigated.

Police do not know how long the body was in the water. The gender and identification of the body are both unknown but police said it does not appear to be 23-year-old Michael Kelleher, who went missing after a Celtics game last month.

The medical examiner arrived on scene to take the body away. An autopsy will be performed.
