Memphis Police believe drowning victim was prowler

(WMC-TV) - Police are investigating a drowning early Saturday morning at Wolf River Harbor.

A Memphis Police Department Harbor Patrol Unit recovered a man's body from the Mississippi River at about 8:50 a.m. Police received a call from the 700 block of Marine Cottage Drive about six hours earlier that the man was underwater.

Police reported that, after a preliminary investigation, the man appeared to be a prowler who jumped into the water in the harbor's marina area after an area resident threatened to call police.

An investigation is ongoing.
