Baltimore police this morning recovered a body floating in the Inner Harbor, the second one discovered there in the last week.

A police spokeswoman confirmed the body was found at 201 E. Pratt Street at approximately 7:30 a.m. This comes after another body was recovered on May 20 less than a week ago beside the National Aquarium. The Baltimore Sun reported that event was observed by a crowd of visitors.

Of the body found Friday morning, police said there were no signs of foul play and that it was an adult male, possibly homeless. Homicide detectives responded, per department protocol.

The Sun reports the body found on May 20 was identified as that of 24-year-old Roger Williams-Dorsey.

Last December, police found the body of 23-year-old Michael Bagley in the harbor at Fells Point. His death hit hard in the community of Loyola Blakefield the Jesuit all-boys school he had attended in Towson and across Baltimore, where he lived.

Google Maps offers a display of bodies found in the Inner Harbor since October 2013. It catalogues 12 locations where bodies have been recovered. It’s doesn’t appear to include the latest discoveries.
