The Multnomah County Medical Examiner’s office identified the man whose body was found Thursday morning in the Columbia River as Carl Lacour.

Lacour, 45, of Camas jumped off a boat Aug. 21 near Jantzen Beach and presumably drowned then. A Hayden Island resident spotted his body on Thursday and it was recovered by Portland Fire & Rescue.

The Multnomah County Medical Examiner’s office determined Lacour died from drowning.
