Body found in Laconia River
The body was pulled from the bottom of the channel behind Meredith Bridge Cemetery after police were notified at 8:48 a.m., Laconia police said.
Authorities know the man's name but were not releasing it until family members were notified.
Asked whether foul play was suspected, police Sgt. Thomas Swett said: ';There's an autopsy next week.';
Marine Patrol as well as Fish and Game personnel were involved in the body's recovery.
David Goodwin, a cook at the nearby Water Street Cafe, said customers and staff were talking about the discovery.
';They thought they saw some of the divers,'; he said.
Goodwin said he hoped it was no one he knew. ';I feel bad for that family,'; he said.
Goodwin recalled a body recovered a few years ago near a boat ramp about a half-mile away.
