Body found floating in Central Park pond

Another body has turned up in a Central Park body of water.  The NYPD is investigating the latest death, the third body to turn up in waters in the park in the past two months.

The latest body was found at the Conservatory Pond near 74th Street and East Drive at about 8 a.m. Sunday.  The man was pronounced dead at the scene.

A person saw the body and thought it was a person drowning so they jumped into the water before discovering that it was a dead person.

The medical examiner is to determine the cause of death.  No identification of the victim has been released.

Last month, two bodies were found in separate bodies of water in Central Park within a two-day period. Police said neither had obvious signs of trauma.
