TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. — Authorities have identified the body of a man found near the mouth of the Boardman River in northwestern Michigan.

The Traverse City Police Department announced Wednesday the body was identified as that of 45-year-old Herbert Beaulieu, who was living in Suttons Bay and was originally from Minnesota.

Beaulieu’s body was found floating where the Boardman River meets West Grand Traverse Bay by a man walking his dog Tuesday morning.

Authorities say a preliminary examination reveals no signs of trauma. However, investigators are still waiting for toxicology tests to determine the cause of Beaulieu’s death.
