EAST PROVIDENCE â€” The search for a 20-year-old East Providence man missing since Jan. 2 ended on a tragic note when police confirmed Friday that the body of a man who was found last week under a boathouse near India Point Park was identified as Daniel LaRue.
LaRueâ€™s body, which was dressed in winter clothing, was found discovered under a ramp at Brown Universityâ€™s Hunter S. Marston Boathouse on June 19, almost six months after he was first reported missing by his family.
LaRueâ€™s cause of death is pending further investigation by the medical examinerâ€™s officer, but there were no signs of foul play, said East Providence Detective Commander Capt. Richard Frazier, adding his department was notified by Providence police on Thursday that the body had been identified as LaRue.
