IOWA CITY — Iowa City police have identified the man found dead underneath a bridge Monday afternoon.
Police said Eric Riskedahl, 45, of Iowa City was found in a makeshift homeless camp under the Highway 6 bridge at the Iowa River around 2:45 p.m. Monday.
Iowa City Police Sgt. Derek Frank said Riskedahl is a transient, but could not confirm whether he lived in the camp where he was found.
Police are unsure when Riskedahl died, Frank said. Investigators do not think foul play was involved.
Anyone with information on Riskedahl’s whereabouts on or around Sunday is asked to call the Iowa City Police Department. Autopsy results are pending from the Johnson County Medical Examiner’s Office.
Riskedahl’s death is not thought to be related to the death of Jonathan Guerrero, who was found dead in Ralston Creek on Monday morning.
