Manchester police confirm identity of body pulled from river last weekend

MANCHESTER - Manchester Police confirmed Sunday that the body of a male found on the banks of the Merrimack River along Riverdale Avenue a week ago was a 22-year-old city man who went missing from that same area last November.

Manchester Police Lt. Michael Hurley said Sunday night Kody Sharp, a resident of Riverdale Avenue, was last seen outside a home on that secluded street at 12:30 a.m. Sunday, Nov. 25.

"The case is closed, and there are no signs of foul play," said Lt. Hurley.

Sharp was the son of Kevin S. Sharp of Manchester and Sandra (DiStefano) Sharp of Pembroke. He was raised in Manchester and Pembroke and attended Pembroke Academy.

He was a carpenter and owned his own business, Sharp Builders, according to his published obituary. He also enjoyed fishing, riding motorcycles and four-wheelers. He enjoyed snowboarding and was a member of the Davion Snowshoe Club.
