AUGUSTA, Maine — The Greenbush man whose body was pulled from the Penobscot River on Saturday morning drowned, the state medical examiner’s office said Monday.

“The cause of death is drowning. The manner of death is pending further investigation,” a spokesman for the medical examiner’s office said.

Corey Grenier, 21, who recently had moved to Bangor, was reported missing by his family on Friday. His relatives found his body a day later, around 9 a.m. Saturday, floating in the river near Maine Motel Supply on South Main Street in Brewer.

Brewer police Cpl. Steve Boyd said there was nothing new to release in the investigation into Grenier’s death.

Maine Marine Patrol search crews, who were already in the area looking for a person who jumped from the Joshua Chamberlain Bridge earlier this month, assisted police, as did deputies from the Penobscot County Sheriff’s Department.
