Middletown Police found a body in the Connecticut River today after they received a call from a kayaker who saw it this morning.
Officers located what appeared to be a male party near the shore south of Cromwell this morning.
The Middletown Fire department hoisted the body from its position down a steep embankment after the police were unable to remove the body.
The State of Connecticut Office of the Chief Medical Examiner later arrived on the scene to take possession of the male.
An initial identification of the party has been made, but his identity is being withheld pending a positive identification.
No foul play is suspected at this time.
