On Thursday March 30th 2023 at approximately 1720 hrs dispatch received a call about a ‘man down’ on the River Greenway (Maumee Pathway) Between Anthony and Coliseum Blvd near Carrington Field (700 N Coliseum). Officers with the Fort Wayne Police Dept arrived to find a deceased adult male in the tree line near the river. At this time, it is unknown how the male died or how he came to arrive at this location, however the recently high river levels are believed to be a factor.
