Pittsburgh river rescue crews pulled the body of a man from the Monongahela River in the South Side Flats Thursday, May 10, 2018.

Authorities on Friday released the identity of a man found dead in the Monongahela River the previous day.

The Allegheny County Medical Examiner’s Office identified the man as Charles Patterson, 73. Voter registration records list an address in Hazelwood for Patterson.

Pittsburgh police and river rescue crews pulled Patterson from the river in the area behind South Water Street near the Steelers practice facility shortly after 11 a.m. Thursday.

Investigators combed the area along the riverbank and the nearby Three Rivers Heritage Trail for evidence, police said.

A police spokeswoman said there is no update regarding the investigation. She said Patterson was not listed as a missing person.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
