Police investigate dead body found in pond
By Jessica Strachan firstname.lastname@example.org
It was around 2:30 p.m. Sept. 15 when the Southfield Police Department got word of a morbid sight in a pond outside an office building on Northwestern Highway.
“We received a call stating that a woman believed there was a dead body floating in a pond in that area,” said Lt. Nick Loussia of the Southfield Police Department. The incident occurred in the 28000 block of Northwestern Highway, and officers who arrived at the scene confirmed that the person was deceased, though many details remain unclear.
“We believe the person is a 46-year-old male from Redford, and based on the initial report, this appears to be an accidental drowning,” Loussia said, adding that further information to identify the victim is being withheld pending the notification of his family and loved ones.
Officers investigating the matter did find several empty liquor bottles at the scene, though no foul play is suspected, nor is suicide.
“We don’t know yet what exactly happened, and we may never know,” Loussia said. “It is still under investigation.”
The Southfield Police Department was awaiting toxicology reports from the Oakland County Medical Examiner’s Office to determine what might have happened.
