The body of a man found in the water at the Glen Park Hydro Dam has now been identified as that of 27-year old Bryan J. Reilly of Watertown.

Authorities are extending an offer of gratitude to the public, whom they say has been extremely helpful in identifying Reilly in response the the following description which was released by State Police on Tuesday, January 21, 2014 after the body was found at approximately 9:10am: “The subject is described as a white male, approximately 6’0” to 6’03”, with beard and mustache, weighing approximately 260 pounds with black hair, brown eyes.  The decent was found wearing a blue “American Eagle Outfitter” sweat shirt size x-large, greenish-tan vintage cargo pants, brown craftsman work boots approximate size 13, and a two sided belt (brown/black) size 44.

At this time New York State Police say it does not appear that anyone else was involved in his death.  However, they do not know what brought Reilly, who resided at 530 Franklin Street, to the dam on the Black River where he died.  The exact cause of death is still under investigation.

Troopers have been assisted with their investigation by the Jefferson County Medical Examiner’s Office, the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office, Jefferson County District Attorney, Watertown Police, Glen Park Police, and the Fort Drum Criminal Investigation Division.
