An Atlanta Police Department spokesman said Thursday that a body was recovered from the Chattahoochee River in Atlanta this week and that authorities have positively identified the deceased person as Timothy Cunningham. Michael O'Connor of the Atlanta Police told reporters. Doctors who've examined his body say there's no evidence of trauma or foul play, and they believe the cause of death is drowning. He said fire-rescue officials were unable to access the bank to retrieve the body, forcing them to go upstream and carefully move Cunningham's body further downstream. They said the state of the body found in the river was consistent with it being there since mid-February.
