The body of a 24-year-old man was recovered from the Chicago River in Lincoln Park on Thursday.

Chicago police said the 24-year-old man was pulled from the water at about 5:30 p.m. at the 2700 block of North Levitt Street. He was confirmed dead at the scene.

Detectives were conducting a death investigation. No other information was available.

The news comes two days after the cause of death of 21-year-old Polish businessman Krzysztof Zubert was announced. His body was found in Lake Michigan after disappearing from a party in his North neighborhood on Chicago’s River in December.

At the time, detectives called the case a death investigation rather than a drowning.

Zubert died from ethanol poisoning, according to the Cook County Coroner’s Office. He was ruled an accident.Cause of death announced after Chicago police

Szubert’s death comes just days before Northwest doctoral student Peter Salvino, 25, was also found in Lake Michigan after disappearing from a party in Lincoln Park.

Last month, the Cook County Coroner’s Office announced Salvino’s cause of death and cause of death as “drowning due to ethanol poisoning.” The cause of death was determined to be an accident.
