An unidentified dead man was found in the Trinity River in east Fort Worth.

Police officers were dispatched on Monday around 11:30 a.m. to an area of the Trinity River near Interstate 30 and Riverside Drive, reported WFAA.

Tarrant County Medical Examiners Office is working to determine the cause of death of the person and to identify the deceased male, police stated, per WFAA.

This discovery makes the second deceased body being reported in a river in the DFW metroplex this week.

As previously reported by The Dallas Express, the body of an unidentified man was discovered at White Rock Creek on April 21 after the man was attempting to ford the creek.

A woman who had been with the man called 911 on April 20 at 10:32 p.m. to report that he had gone missing. Police have released little information regarding this incident and are unsure why the man was attempting to cross the creek. The body was found on Sunday morning, and the Dallas County Medical Examiner’s Office has yet to release the cause of death or his identity.

White Rock Creek was running at a very high level this weekend, according to information from the National Weather Association.

Strong weather created chaos across the DFW this past weekend. Power outages and flooding occurred in some areas, as did an increase in traffic crashes, according to The Dallas Morning News.

The National Weather Service reported that the storms experienced this past weekend broke records for the daily maximum rainfall at DFW Airport. The record for April 20 was 2.34 inches, which broke the 1942 record of 1.52 inches set, reported DMN.

The area that had the most measured total rainfall in the metroplex was Dallas Love Field Airport, with 4.22 inches reported.
