MILWAUKEE --- The Medical Examiner's Office confirms the body pulled from the river Thursday night is Nick Wilcox. His body was discovered near Old World Third Street Thursday evening around 6:00 p.m. Two MPD officers were patrolling the riverwalk when they discovered the partially submerged remains.
