SCHENECTADY — New details emerged Tuesday in the case of Ronald Johnson, whose body was recovered from the Mohawk River on Friday.
Schenectady Police spokesman Sgt. Jeffrey McCutcheon said that the investigation found Johnson's body had been in the river for "at least a few days," and that he had fallen out of contact with those who knew him for at least a week to a week and-a-half.
The investigation determined there was no foul play involved, according to McCutcheon. Investigators were unable to determine where exactly Johnson entered the water.
His body was discovered Friday shortly after 10 a.m. near Riverside Park by local pastor Father Richard Carlino. Carlino said he was driving his pontoon boat on his day off when he spotted the body near a dock.
