DENVER – A badly decomposed body was found in the Platte River by a construction worker near alameda Avenue and Santa Fe Drive Wednesday afternoon.

Firefighters have recovered the body, said Lt. Phil Champagne of the Denver Fire Department. The body is so badly decomposed that it’s hard to identify the gender of the person, he said.

There is no sign of trauma, Champagne said, however, the Denver police homicide department was called to the scene as a precaution.
