HOUSTON - Houston police have identified a man found dead on the 800 block of North York Street on Sunday.

The man was identified as Guillermo Legoreta, 43, of Mexico.

Authorities say an autopsy by the Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences ruled that he suffered no apparent injuries. It has not been determined if foul play was involved, according to officials.

Police say a woman and her family saw Legoreta's body floating in the Buffalo Bayou while on a bike ride and she contacted HPD.

Authorities say Legoreta was in possession of a black Kyocera flip phone and a Mexican peso.

The Houston Police Department is asking anyone with information about the case or Legoreta's family to call the homicide division at 713-308-3600.
