Body found in New Jersey river ID'd as missing Wall Street Journal reporter
Morris County Prosecutor Fredric Knapp announced Thursday that the body was positively identified as that of David Bird, who was 55 when he disappeared in January 2014 while taking a walk near his home in Long Hill Township.
Knapp says two men canoeing Wednesday in the Passaic River came across a red jacket. Police later found human remains.
Bird had worked for the Journal's publisher, Dow Jones & Co., for more than 20 years.
