Fayetteville, NC - FAYETTEVILLE, NC (AP) - Police in North Carolina say it could be days before they can identify a body pulled from a Fayetteville pond.
The Fayetteville Observer reported Tuesday the body appeared to be that of a man wearing shorts and white tennis shoes. Police say it is unclear if the person was killed or died naturally because the body was badly decomposed.
Mintz Pond feeds a Fayetteville Public Works Commission water plant. A commission worker was taking water samples when she saw the body Monday. Police used boats to tow the body out of the lake.
