    A grisly find along the Connecticut River in Windsor.

    A boater called police just before 1 p.m. Saturday afternoon after spotting a badly decomposed body along the river bank near Palisado Ave.

    The State Police dive team joined crews from Windsor, Windsor Locks, and Warehouse Point in the recovery.

    Police said it's not clear if the remains are of a man or woman.

    "The reason we're using the State Police dive team is so they can evaluate if this is a crime scene, are there things that need to be collected in the immediate area where the body is or is it someone that floated from Points North," said Sgt. Christopher Mckee from Windsor Police.

    The State Medical Examiner will perform an autopsy to determine the cause of death.
