BOSTON, March 15 (UPI) -- A body found in the Charles River was that of a man who took his own life by jumping from a bridge, Boston police said Friday.

The Suffolk County District Attorney's Office said the identity of the man would not be released because no crime was committed, The Boston Globe reported. He was described as a 32-year-old city resident seen jumping on New Year's Day.

After witnesses reported the apparent suicide, police divers searched the river below the Massachusetts Avenue bridge for 8 hours without finding anything. The body was pulled from the river Thursday in the same area.
