Body pulled from Milwaukee River Thursday

by

MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - A body was found Thursday in the Milwaukee River in the city’s downtown.

Police said the person was a 45 to 50-year-old man – and he was not 24-year-old Nick Wilcox, who was last seen leaving an Irish bar in that area in the first couple hours of the New Year.

Construction workers spotted a body Thursday morning, and fire department crews pulled the victim from the water around 9:30.

The unidentified body was taken to the Milwaukee County medical examiner’s office as part of an investigation.

Police, relatives, and friends had been searching for Wilcox. Rescue divers got a tip about the body last Thursday, but they did not find anything.
