Human remains found in river in central Minneapolis

Human remains were recovered from the Mississippi River near St. Anthony Main in Minneapolis Sunday night. 

Authorities said they recovered human remains from the Mississippi River in central Minneapolis Sunday night. 

According to the Hennepin County Sheriff's Department, water patrol deputies were called to the river near 315 Main Street SE at about 8:42 p.m. Sunday. There, they found Minneapolis police officers who had recovered the remains from the river. 

Police cannot confirm if the remains belong to 36-year-old Adam Johnson, whose body parts have been found in three spots since last month. 

The mother of Johnson’s son told FOX 9 authorities told her they are testing the remains to see if they belong to Johnson. There are still no arrests in his case. 

The remains found in the river were taken to the county medical examiner's office. Detectives from both the sheriff's department and police department are investigating.
