Des Moines Police say the body of an adult male was discovered near the Des Moines River Wednesday afternoon. 

Around 4:00 p.m., a passerby walking spotted the body near Court Avenue by the riverwalk, and pointed it out to a construction worker.  The worker then called 911. 

The death is under investigation.  The cause of death won’t be available until an autopsy is conducted, which could take several days.
