The body of a man was found in the Clear Fork of the Trinity River close to downtown Fort Worth, as reported by fire department officials. The cause of death is currently under investigation.

What are the details?

Fort Worth authorities received the emergency call for help reporting a possible drowning at about 11:00 a.m. The location of the incident was in the 200 block of Viola Street, according to The Star Telegram.

Firefighters and police officers went swiftly to the scene. Just a few minutes after getting there, firefighters were able to pull a man’s body out of the water. No information has been given out about the possible cause of death.

For now, it is not clear if this could be a suicide case or someone covering up for a murder.

The investigation is active as the officials gather evidence and follow leads to help explain the course of events that led to the tragic consequence. The name of the man has not been released by the police. No other details were available.

Anyone who has relevant information about the incident, knew the victim, can point to specific conflicts or disputes that the man was involved in during the last few days or can give the names and likely location of any persons involved in the apparent drowning is asked to get in touch with the Fort Worth authorities as soon as possible.

The man’s family deserves closure, and they need to know why his life ended that way and if it was intentional or planned by someone else.
