NEW BRUNSWICK — Police recovered a body from the Raritan River on Thursday.

Police spokesman J.T. Miller said the body of an adult male was found in the water near the boat slips at Boyd Park along Route 18. He did not disclose the identity of the man.

Miller said that there were no signs of foul play but a final determination would not be made until an autopsy is complete.

Elsewhere in New Jersey this week, the body of Richard Morton, a 61-year-old missing man from Ocean Grove, was found Wednesday on the beach in Ocean Grove.
