A body found in Lake Michigan near a North Side dog beach Tuesday morning has been identified as that of an Uptown neighborhood man.

The Chicago Police Marine Unit found the body after they responded about 8:55 a.m. to a call of a person in the water in the 4700 block of North Simonds Drive, police said. The location is near the Montrose Dog Beach.

The body has since been identified as that of Nils Lindberg, 64, of the 4900 block of North Kenmore, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

The cause and manner of his death have not yet been determined as of Friday evening, a spokesman for the medical examiner’s office said.
