The body of a fully clothed man was pulled from a park in New York’s Central Park just weeks after a decomposing body was found in a nearby lake.
Police recovered the clothed body, which was floating face down in Turtle Pond, Monday night. The deceased was in his mid-20s. No criminal activity was suspected in the death.
The coroner is investigating how the man died.
Turtle Pond gets its name because it is home to a colony of invasive turtles, most of which have been abandoned by their owners.
It is the second body retrieved from a body of water in Central Park in two weeks.
On September 30, police officers found a partially decomposed body in a lake near 79th Street and West Drive, according to the New York Daily News. The subject was a man in his 20s who was also fully clothed and was pronounced dead at the scene.
