Body found in Christina River is North Carolina man

WDEL has learned the identity of the man whose body was found in the Christina River earlier this week.

He's been identified as 43-year-old Jonathan Sheriff of North Carolina.

Sheriff's body was found Tuesday under the Christiana Bypass by Old Baltimore Pike.

It's still unclear how Sheriff died, but the state Medical Examiners' office found no signs of trauma and doesn't suspect foul play.
