Multnomah County deputies want to know how a body ended up in the Willamette River.
A recreational boater spotted the body just south of the Steel bridge Saturday night at 8:40 p.m.
Deputies are investigating the cause of death. They said it is too soon to say if foul play was involved. They plan to release the body to the Multnomah County medical examiners.
Investigators are waiting to release a cause of death pending an autopsy. They plan to release the man's name after they identify family members.
