A man who was discovered in the Potomac River Tuesday night has been identified as the Washington, D.C., police officer previously arrested and charged with producing child pornography last week, according to a statement from the Washington, D.C., police department Wednesday morning.

Marc Washington, 32, of Waldorf, was released from jail Monday under a 24-hour curfew in his father’s southern Maryland home following two days of deliberations between Washington’s lawyer and prosecutors.

Police said they were contacted by a man Tuesday night. The U.S. Park Police responded to the first block of Ohio Drive SW, at Hains Point, and found an empty car with clothing located nearby.

A man was found in the Potomac just before 9:30 p.m. and rushed to an area hospital where he was pronounced dead, according to Gwendolyn Crump, the D.C. police department’s chief spokeswoman. Authorities said the investigation was continuing.
