ROCHESTER — Rochester police are investigating after a dive team pulled a body from the Zumbro River.

Reports said police and fire officials responded to a call about a body floating in the river Tuesday evening near the Rochester Public Library.

Lt. Tom Kaase had said the body was submerged so that authorities couldn’t tell if the person was male or female before it was recovered. He says there was no evidence of foul play.

They hadn’t released more details late Tuesday.
