Body found in Schuylkill River, police investigating


READING, Pa. – Police say kayakers found a body in the Schuylkill River Sunday afternoon.

The body was recovered just before 2 p.m. about a half-mile east of Gibraltar Road in Exeter Township.

According to police, the kayakers were on the river searching for 26-year-old Bradley Verret who was last seen near Trooper Thorn’s restaurant in Reading just over a month ago.

Investigators say the body does not match the description of Verret.

The victim is a white male in his mid to late 50s or early 60s.

Police say preliminary findings are leading investigators to strongly consider the possibility of this matter being suicide.



Police are asking anyone with information regarding the circumstances surrounding this man’s death to contact the Exeter Township Police Department at 610-779-1490.
