The Allegheny County medical examiner's office today identified the body found Sunday in the Monongahela River as that of Ronald Coleman, 57, of West Homestead.
A passerby spotted Mr. Coleman's body in the river about 11 a.m. at Station Square near the Gateway Clipper Fleet docks.
The medical examiner's office is waiting for results of toxicology tests to determine the cause and manner of his death.
Officials identified Mr. Coleman earlier today when family members contacted the medical examiner's after seeing news reports of an unidentified man found in the river.
Pittsburgh police homicide detectives declined to release further information until the results of the toxicology tests come back.
