WILLIMANTIC, CT (WFSB) -

A fisherman found a 37-year-old white man laying face down in the Willimantic River Wednesday afternoon.

After discovering the body around 4 p.m., the unidentified man walked to a nearby radio station, WILI-FM, and workers there called police.

"He was pretty shaken up, " said Jerry Malhait, who is a production director at WILI-FM. 

Police said the discovery does not appear to be suspicious at this point. It appears the man fell off a wall near the river, where the body was located.

The identity of the man has not been released.

The medical examiner will perform an autopsy on the body to determine the cause and manner of death.

The incident remains under investigation by the Willimantic Police Department.
