RIVER BODY: Police Release Man’s Name
Police have released the name of the man found in the Des Moines River downtown.
Police identified the body, spotted by a woman near the Center Street dam Friday afternoon, as Sachin Rayappa.
A wet team recovered the 24-year-old’s body and found no obvious signs of injury or trauma. Police think he had been in the river for several days.
An autopsy will be performed to determine a cause of death.
The Des Moines resident was reported missing last Tuesday.
