Police have dismissed claims on social media that a serial killer is pushing people to their deaths in a city's docks.
The bodies of three men have been recovered from the water in Bristol in the past six weeks.
A body believed to be a missing 29-year-old Abdulkadir Mahamoud was pulled from the River Avon on Friday.
On February 27 the body of 26 year-old Lewis Ball was found in the nearby Floating Harbour after a two-week manhunt.
His disappearance after a night out on the Thekla, a nightclub on an converted old ship which is permanently moored in the city centre.
And Deakon Wilkins, 24, was also found dead in the Floating Harbour near Temple Meads rail station on February 5 after he went missing in January.
He was last seen leaving Motion nightclub in Avon Street in the early hours of Saturday, January 14.
The spate of deaths has triggered speculation on social media that a serial killer could be on the loose, targeting men who have been out clubbing for the night.
Joe Henderson wrote on Facebook: "Police and the media are avoiding the obvious - becoming very clear that Bristol has a serial killer on the loose."
Alistair Bunce said: "Bristol Pusher strikes again? Surely CID must be starting to think there is someone out there pushing people in!"
Bianca Symone Liliana Anoushka added: "This is strange. Been saying it for months now.
"Noticed as they are all men and not women. Perhaps there's a pusher? Perhaps robbing drunk men after nights out and pushing them in the river? Who knows?"
Kaye Hulme added: "I don't care what any one says but there is something sinister about these deaths!"
Police have said that the deaths of the first two men are not being treated as suspicious.
Both cases have been handed to the Avon Coroner for investigation, rather than being treated as criminal cases.
They have not yet said if the death of Abdulkadir Mahamoud's is being treated as suspicious.
Asked about the social media speculation Avon and Somerset police said: "There is nothing to suggest that any of the deaths are linked or suspicious.
"They appear to have been tragic accidents.
"We are always willing to receive new information and intelligence, which is not based on speculation.
"We are continuing to work with the coroner on the incidents which are being treated as non-suspicious sudden deaths."
The spate of deaths has led to the Royal Life Saving Society issuing a warning for people to be more safety conscious near water.
