The reason they emphasize the man was fully clothed is because someone jumped from a bridge naked near the same area. This body hasn't been found yet that I'm aware of.

I wonder if this man was reported missing and what he was doing in the Twin Cities. It would sure be nice if the media would let us know there things!

How long was he missing? How long had he been in the twin cities? Why? Where is the media on this case?

That's what seems lacking- the media coverage. This would typically get a spot on the news but lately I don't hear a thing on the news. About any of the bodies found in rivers, lakes or water.

There are links below the article that may have more information.
