Remains pulled from Mississippi mark 4th discovery of man's dismembered body parts
Human remains pulled from the Mississippi River on July 4 have been positively identified as belonging to Adam Richard Johnson.
The remains were found in the river near 315 Main Street SE in Minneapolis around 8:40 p.m. that day. The city's police department and Hennepin County Sheriff's Office, at the time, declined to say whether they were connected to Johnson's death, citing the medical examiner's pending determination.
The Hennepin County Medical Examiner on Tuesday confirmed to Bring Me The News the remains have been positively identified as belonging to Johnson.
Johnson's dismembered body parts have now been discovered in four separate locations in Minneapolis, starting with the initial shocking discovery on June 17.
Minneapolis police have said his remains were found at three locations in Northeast Minneapolis. The other discovery occurred about a mile south on the west side of the Mississippi River.
The Minneapolis Police Department is treating the 36-year-old's death as a homicide, saying he appears to have been targeted.
As of July 12, a spokesperson for the department said they had not yet recovered all of Johnson.
