SOUTH BEND — Authorities have confirmed the identity for the body found floating in the St. Joseph River on Monday.
The body was spotted by a pedestrian along the river near the Notre Dame rowing team’s boathouse on Northside Boulevard. It was recovered about a quarter of a mile from where it was originally seen near the shore in Howard Park.
On Tuesday, after an autopsy in Fort Wayne, authorities confirmed for the family of Eddie Woods Jr. that it was him.
Woods was last seen a week ago Sunday after police say he ran away from an accident at Lincolnway and Miami in South Bend.
