Authorities are investigating the death of a man whose body was removed from the Codorus Creek in York Friday afternoon.
York County Coroner Barry Bloss said the body of 50-year-old Daniel J. Wise had been in the water for 24 hours, or perhaps a bit longer, before it was removed from the creek near the spillway in the 200 block of W. Philadelphia Street.
“At this point, I don't see any observable trauma on him, but we're gonna be scheduling an autopsy to determine the manner and cause of death,” Bloss said.
Police, firefighters and the York County coroner's office were called to the creek at around 12:30 p.m., and Wise's body was recovered about an hour later.
Investigators said that according to his family, Wise was homeless.
