A death investigation is underway Monday after a body was discovered in a pond at La Sierra University in Riverside, police say.
The deceased person was found shortly before 10:30 a.m. by a maintenance worker in the 4500 block of Riverwalk Parkway, according to Riverside Police Department Officer Ryan Railsback.
A cause of death was not immediately known, but police said they did not immediately suspect foul play.
The body was removed from the water around 1:30 p.m. and will be examined by the coroner’s office, which will identity the person and determine how he or she died.
This wasn’t the first case where someone was found dead in one of the college’s water features. A homeless person’s was discovered in a different pond in the area within the past year, according to Railsback.
No further details were immediately released amid the ongoing investigation.
