Body found in Pennsylvania river was a 'Shark Tank' entrepreneur”

The medical examiner determined the body belonged to Philip Reitnour, 58.

Last Thursday, the body of a white man in his 50s was found in Philadelphia's Schuylkill River.

As Heavy noted, Reitnour appeared on "Shark Tank" in October 2014 and was not able to secure an investment for his product from the Sharks.

On the show, he pitched his app that allows users to live-steam during emergencies to share their Global Positioning System locations, photos, videos and more.

At the time, he told the Philadelphia Business Journal he was just looking for exposure for the idea and didn't expect an investor on the show to participate in the proposal.

Interestingly, WPVI reports court records show Reitnour was three mil in debt.

Video of his appearance on "Shark Tank" shows Reitnour and a partner telling the panel about the app "EmergenSee", billed as a better option than using 911.

The man was pronounced dead at the scene, the spokesman says, noting that police are investigating the death "from all angles".
