The body was located floating in what would typically be an inland area, but was currently flooded due to the river’s high water levels, said the GCSO.
Investigators say they do not know how long the body was in the water other than it was for an “undetermined amount of time.”
The Minneapolis Police Department said that foul play is not suspected.
