The body of a missing Grayslake man who was visiting Washington, D.C. was found this week floating in a reservoir, authorities said Friday.
The discovery of 35-year-old Sarath Kumar Potharaju was made at 12:51 a.m. Thursday in the Tidal Basin near the Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial, according to Araz Alali, a spokesman with the Washington D.C. Metropolitan Police Department.
Potharaju was reported missing Easter Sunday by his family after he had been sight-seeing. The cause of death is undetermined, though a formal autopsy is scheduled.
His family has been notified, Alali said.
Potharaju, a software engineer, lived in Grayslake with his wife and two children. Several of his relatives are in India, according to a United States Park Police missing persons alert.
Police believe there is no connection between Potharajuís death and that of another man found nearby last week.Copyright © 2014 Paddock Publications, Inc. All rights reserved.
