Man Who Disappeared After Nationals Game Delay Found Dead

A body discovered in the Anacostia River has been identified as a Virginia man who disappeared after a Nationals game rain delay days earlier, D.C. police say.

Police identified the victim as 25-year-old Tyler Reed of Alexandria, Virginia.

Police in Fairfax County, where Reed was reported missing, say he left Nationals Park during a three-and-a-half-hour rain delay on May 5 and went to a nearby cafe.

His body was found in the Anacostia River on Saturday, less than a mile from the stadium. Police say there were no signs of foul play, but an autopsy will determine the cause of death.
