On Jan. 15, 2011, police pulled Tharrington’s ice laden 2003 Jeep Cherokee from the Schuylkill River near the Columbia Bridge. The vehicle’s gearshift was in neutral, and the driver’s door was open, but there were no signs of injury or foul play.
Six weeks later, on Feb. 28, Tharrington’s body was found in the water near the Robert Gillin Jr. Boathouse at 2200 Kelly Drive, Philadelphia, PA. The Boathouse is the home to the Saint Joseph's University men's and women's rowing teams.
Tharrington lived on the 1100 block of West Erie Avenue. Kelly Drive is located between Club Whisper and and Tharrington's residence.
Club Whisper has since made surveillance footage available to investigators, but authorities have not released any information about his death.
