New Orleans police on Wednesday morning pulled the body of an unidentified man from the Mississippi River in lower Algiers.

A tug boat captain spotted the body floating in the water near the 10500 block of Patterson Drive, police said.

Police reported the sighting a little after 10 a.m.

The death will remain unclassified until the Orleans Parish Coroner’s Office can conduct an autopsy, said officer Garry Flot, a Police Department spokesman.
