A man’s dead body was found Friday on the shore of Northerly Island on Lake Michigan.

About 11:45 a.m., someone noticed the body near the 12th Street beach and called 911, Chicago police said.

Officers responded to the 1500 block of South Lynn White Drive on Northerly Island and found the body washed up on the shore, police said.

The 24-year-old man, whose identification was still inside his pocket, had rigor mortis, police said.
