The state medical examiner's office is conducting an autopsy on a man's body found floating in the Patapsco River at Dundalk Marine Terminal on Tuesday, and police were attempting to identify the body through fingerprints, authorities said.

About 10:30 a.m., a crewman aboard the ship MV Star Derby, docked along Pier 3 at the marine terminal, spotted the body and pulled it aboard before calling police, said Cpl. Jonathan Green, a spokesman for the Maryland Transportation Authority Police, the agency in charge of security at the terminal.
