ARLINGTON — A man’s body was found Wednesday afternoon in the Stillaguamish River near Arlington.

Two anglers called 911 at about 5:30 p.m. to report they’d spotted the body in the river near 59th Avenue NE and Dike Avenue. They remained at the location until fire crews and officials with the state Department of Fish and Wildlife reached the scene, said Shari Ireton, a spokeswoman with the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office.

The body was recovered and sheriff’s major crimes detectives summoned. Identification and determination about the cause and manner of the man’s death was pending an autopsy by the medical examiner.
