(AP) Police are investigating after a man's body was pulled from the icy waters of the Irondequoit Bay.

Webster police received a call around 3:30 Monday afternoon that a person was in the water at the end of Mayer's Marina near the Irondequoit Bay Outlet Bridge.

First responders pulled the man's body from the bay. Police have identified the victim but are not releasing his name pending notification of family.

Chief Joseph Rieger says he doesn't think the death was suspicious.

Republican leaders from the six counties that are in the 54th State Senate district bet all their chips that Canandaigua Supervisor Pam Helming would keep the district in GOP hands. That bet — and Helming — turned out to be a winner.

Helming took 55 percent of the vote to defeat Democrat Kenan Baldridge and Floyd Rayburn, and will succeed Michael Nozzolio, who didn’t seek re-election because of health issues.

When Democrat Adam Bello was appointed as Monroe County clerk in March by Gov. Andrew Cuomo, Republicans immediately mounted a strategy to make sure he wasn’t elected in November. Their strategy failed, and now a Democrat holds the clerk’s office in a Republican administration.

Adam Bello beat Cheryl Rozzi 58 percent to 42 percent to continue in the position.
