Three women playing “Pokemon Go” and hunting for virtual fictional characters found a dead body Thursday near a creek bed in a San Diego park, police said.

The “Go” players were walking the trails and playing the augmented reality game about 3 p.m. in Marian Bear Memorial Park when they stumbled on the body of a man who had been dead for quite some time, said Officer Travis Easter, spokesman for the San Diego Police Department.

“That’s not a part of the game,” Easter said.

The body was found lying in bushes. Police think the man died of natural causes, and don’t suspect foul play. But his death will be investigated, he said.
