The body of what is believed to be Eoin Curran, a 30-year old Irish national -- missing and presumed drowned for six days -- was recovered this afternoon by the New Rochelle Police Harbor Unit after the body was spotted in the waters off New Rochelle. Curran's family will attempt to make identification of the body, said Charlew Rowe, public affairs office for the the U.S Cost Guard.

You are welcome to your opinion but we have a few rules and your comment violated one with inappropriate language.

As for your opinion, you must live a very sheltered life if you find it unusual that a news outlet would run photos or videos from a crime scene. The images on Talk of the Sound are standard for a report of this kind; which is the same reason Channel 12 News is running out video and I expect other news outlets will run the images.

In any case, thanks for reading and expressing your view -- just keep it clean.

That growing old is a priviledge.
