D.C. police have identified the body found earlier this month off the Southwest waterfront.

Police identified Fuzz Woody Short Fuzzy, 70, as the body found in the water near the 1300 block of Maine Avenue SW on April 11, police said last night. Police previously said the body was found with a laminated business card that said “Fuzz W.S. Fuzzy Shoe Shine Doctor.”

The Metropolitan Police Department’s homicide division continues to investigate the cause of the Northwest resident’s death.

Police found the body about 3 p.m. April 11 during the peak bloom period for the Tidal Basin’s cherry blossom trees.
