Body found in Delaware River may be connected to Grayson murder

Officials from the Delaware State police told The Trentonian Wednesday that the body of a man was discovered in the Delaware River last Friday.

The body has been turned over to the New Castle County medical examiner to be identified, and state police did not release time or exact location of where the body was found.

That body may be connected to Trenton’s 16th homicide victim, but officials have not confirmed whether it relates to the murder of Florence Grayson.

On Oct. 3, Trenton police discovered the body of Grayson, 54, who died from multiple stab wounds in her upper torso in her home at 1326 N. Olden Ave. Police sources told The Trentonian at the time of her murder that the body had been inside the house for two days and that her killer is believed to be a man who jumped off the Delaware Memorial Bridge. The possible connection between the Trenton homicide and the Delaware suicide was discovered when a vehicle found at the bridge was connected to a man who lives in Grayson’s home.

Officials from the Delaware River and Bay Authority said the man jumped off the bridge on Oct. 2 at 1:38 p.m. City police have not released any new information officially connecting the Grayson homicide to the bridge jumper.
