NY fashion designer found dead in Hudson river

– Police have identified the body of a man found floating on the Manhattan side of the Hudson River as that of a fashion designer who was reported missing last week.

Police say 55-year-old Michele Savoia’s body was discovered off Chelsea Piers Sunday afternoon not far from where he lived aboard his boat. The cause of death has not yet been determined.

It wasn’t clear how Savoia ended up in the river, but police do not suspect foul play. He was last seen alive leaving a nearby nightclub early Thursday morning.

Savoia reportedly designed hand-crafted suits for celebrities and had a boutique on the Lower East Side.
