NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — A grim discovery was made in a body of water in Central Park Sunday morning.

As WCBS 880’s Myles Miller reported, three passersby were walking their dog around Conservancy Pond near 74th Street and Fifth Avenue just before 8 a.m. when they saw a body in the water and dove in to rescue the person.

They saw the body appeared unresponsive and called police. Authorities immediately pronounced the person deceased and roped off a significant portion of the park to determine what happened.

Investigators describe the deceased body as that of a black male in his 20s or 30s.

Last month two corpses were found in a two-day period in separate bodies of water in Central Park. In both cases, no criminality was found.

The investigation is ongoing as the medical examiner works to determine the cause of death.

    The sick thing is New Yorkers can joke about the Clinton crime syndicate, but will still vote for them.

  2. By any chance did the deceased ever work for the Clintons or the DNC?

  3. Anthony Weiner decided to take a swim? Yeah, that’s the ticket.

    This is getting to be an old story. Surprised there isn’t an IR camera out there already, or maybe there is one?

  7. Case of midnight swimming and using coke.

  8. Probably another Clinton staffer.
