Missing CDC worker's body recovered in Atlanta river

Missing CDC worker's body recovered in Atlanta river

Atlanta Police Department spokesman Carlos Campos confirmed that Cunningham's body was fished out of the Chattahoochee River on April 3, and an autopsy confirmed Cunningham's identity.

"He has this pristine service record and background, and then he's also the guy you can call to help you move furniture or get together with you at a restaurant at the end of a long day", close friend David Calloway told NBC News almost 12 days after Cunningham's disappearance. "Every single belonging we were aware of was located in the residence", said Atlanta Police Department Maj.

CNN reports that officials say there are no signs of foul play.

On Tuesday night, fishermen contacted authorities after discovering a body in the Chattahoochee River near Donald L. Hollowell, about 400 yards upstream from the bridge, and on the Atlanta side of the river. Fulton County's Chief Medical Examiner Jan Gorniak, DO, said the positive identification was confirmed by dental records and that the preliminary cause of death was drowning.

There are still several unanswered questions surrounding Cunningham's disappearance.

The area - not far from Cunningham's home - was inaccessible by walking, police said, noting they struggled to find a place to launch a boat to reach his remains.

Cunningham, a Harvard graduate, was wearing favorite jogging suit, officials said. "As a parent, you have indicators when things are just not right with your child, and that was the case".




O'Connor said three crystals were in his pocket for unknown reasons, although Cunningham was an avid rock collector.

Cunningham was last seen in early February leaving work early, claiming that he did not feel well, according to the Atlanta Journal Constitution.

Police and the CDC released conflicting information about Cunningham in the days after his disappearance. Later, police found his keys, wallet, and dog at his apartment.

By outward appearances, Cunningham seemed to have a successful career. It also praised Cunningham in the role to which he was promoted.

According to the CDC, Timothy Cunningham worked as a commander in the U.S. Public Health Service. Cunningham stressed, however, that as a group, black Americans still have an overall life expectancy that is four years shorter than white Americans. "There's still work to do".

"Barring new information coming forward, we may never be able to tell you how he got to the river", Mr. O'Connor said.
