LOGAN — Police have identified a man found dead on the banks of the Logan River.

The man, identified as 64-year-old Kenneth Schwartz, was spotted by a passerby about 10:20 a.m. Friday at 843 S. 100 West, near Stevens-Henager College. 

Logan Assistant Police Chief Jeff Curtis said Friday there was no evidence of foul play, and police were investigating the death as an accident. Investigators learned that the man had gone to fish the Logan River, and they suspect he may have slipped and fallen down the river's steep embankment.

No new details about Schwartz's death were available Monday.
