TAUNTON — A body was discovered Tuesday morning near the Taunton River behind the Taunton Department of Public Works building on Ingell Street.

No details have been released at this time regarding the cause of death or the identity of the individual.

According to the Taunton Gazette, a CSX Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck parked close to the river next to railroad tracks were being examined by police.

Taunton police say a 911 caller alerted them about the body just after 11:30 a.m on Tuesday.

Over the years there has been a fair share of bodies found in the river, most recently in 2017, when canoers notified officers that they had found a body not far from Power Street and Duffy Drive.
