A body which washed up on the banks of the Potomac River, Tuesday morning, was identified today as belonging to award-winning journalist Harry Gilchrist.

Montgomery County Police spokesman Samuel Jost addressed the media today, bringing to an end five years of speculation.

"I can announce today the findings of the Medical Examiner, who positively identified the body of Harry Ethan Gilchrist," Jost said.

"The department is opening a homicide investigation and will keep you apprised of its progress."

Hikers along the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal Towpath discovered the body two days ago near Sherwin Island, before alerting police. Early reports stated that it had been stripped and decaptitated, and that the torso had undergone "significant trauma".

Gilchrist authored the notorious 2034 piece uncovering the shadowy underground organization known as Callaster.

The story sketches a plot connecting the resurgence of Boko Haram to tech firm Klumbo, civil unrest in the United States, and New York's Marine Titan seawall.

Major civil rights organizations nationwide denied any knowledge of an organization known as Callaster, while Klumbo CEO Richard Filipano dismissed any links to terror organizations as "absurd".

The piece alleges that two government personalities investigating wanted terrorist Abu Mahmd al-Assem had been killed in car crashes and that the US government's top-secret VERITY database had been tampered with by unknown individuals.

Jost was quick to point out that Gilchrist did not die in a car accident and that the cause of death was being withheld pending further police investigation.

Gilchrist is survived by a brother and a 7 year-old daughter.
