In downtown St. Louis, 36-year-old Caleb M. Moriarity thought he'd try his luck swimming across the Mississippi River. He did make it across - just not in the condition he had hoped for. His dead body was spotted by a fisherman near the eastern banks in a rural part of Monroe County. Police say Moriarity was homeless, though he previously had resided in St. Louis and Indiana. Positive identification was made using tattoos from a Facebook page and an acquaintance that observed Moriarity attempting to cross the River. Investigators believe Moriarity drowned, but an official cause of death won't be released pending the results of an autopsy. (BND)
