My colleague Sarah Favot, who worked the day shift today, told me Dracut Police found a decomposing body in the Merrimack River today.
Tough way to start a Sunday.

Jessica Pastore and Stephanie Guyotte, spokeswoman for Middlesex District Attorney Gerard Leone, tell me investigators are still trying to figure out who the body is and how it got into the river.
Dracut Police say the body appears to be a light-skinned male with an average build.
He was wearing dark blue nylon pants with three white stripes on each side, which sounds like Adidas pants. He was also wearing a light-colored polo shirt with the logo “Corporate Chefs Inc.” on the front; white Nike Airmax sneakers; and a Seiko watch with a black band on his left wrist.
I’m not aware of any male missing persons in the area, but if you are, you should probably call police.
Anyone with information on who this man might be please call Dracut Police at 978.957.2123.
