Police recovered the body of 16-year-old Goulet in the Merrimack River Sunday, after he was reported missing Friday.

Results from the autopsy conducted on the body Monday are pending at this time.

The teen is believed to have been swept down a storm drain in Nashua during heavy rain on Friday night.

The Division of Public Works released a report Monday afternoon, saying their investigation was unable to conclude why or how the storm drain cover opened. As a result, the city said it will replace all aluminum covers with stainless-steel covers, as well as securing them closed with "tamper-proof" bolts and locks.

Community members created a memorial at the spot Goulet was last known to be, placing flowers and small items along the river.
