The body of a man recovered from the Des Plaines River in west suburban Maywood nearly two weeks ago has been identified.

Illinois State Police were called about 1 p.m. May 12 after workers cleaning debris from the river found the body near Washington Street and First Avenue in Maywood, according to police.

Divers from the Maywood and Pleasant View fire departments worked to recover the body, police said.

The body has been identified as 26-year-old Edward Genader of Maywood, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

An autopsy Saturday did not rule on his cause and manner of death, with results pending further investigation, according to the medical examiner’s office.
