Body in Charles River Identified as Man Missing From Bell in Hand Tavern
The body pulled from the Charles River by State Police on Tuesday has been identified as Zachary Marr, a Central Massachusetts man who went missing from a Boston bar while celebrating his birthday last month.
Marr, 22, 0f Harvard, was recovered by the Marine Unit around 5:45 p.m. between the State Police barracks in Leverett Circle and the Museum of Science, State Police said in a statement.
“The Massachusetts State Police extend our deepest condolences to the family and friends of Mr. Marr,” police said.
Marr went missing on February 13 while celebrating his birthday with cousins at the Bell in Hand Tavern near Faneuil Hall, reports the Globe. He stepped outside for a cigarette and did not return. Around 1:30 a.m., his cousin Amanda Marr said she received a Snapchat message from him, telling her that bar staff were not letting him back in.
Police do not suspect foul play in Marr’s death, and have previously stated that surveillance footage shows Marr either walking or falling into the Charles River.
“Preliminary evidence does not immediately suggest violent trauma, but the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner will conduct an autopsy to determine the cause and manner of his death,” Jake Wark, a spokesman for Suffolk District Attorney Dan Conley, told the Globe in an email.
Marr attended Mount Wachusett Community College while working full-time at Quiet Logistics in Devens.
