A dead body was discovered around 10am this morning near Lamasco Park by a passerby. Detectives tell Eyewitness News the body was located in a shallow portion of the banks of Pigeon Creek where water is only a foot or so deep. Detectives say the location of the body could have an impact on the investigation. It is unclear how long the body had been there.
Foul play has not been ruled out. The coroners office currently has the body and is examining dental records to try and determine the identity. Investigators will also search through recent missing person records and identifying marks to try and reveal who it was within the next couple of days.
An Investigation is underway.
