A witness reported seeing a body floating face down in the canal just south of Roosevelt at the 7700 block near Vista del Camino, according to Scottsdale police officials.
The body was reported at 6:20 a.m. on May 11. Scottsdale patrol officers responded and located a deceased individual in the small canal by the bike path in the park, officials stated.
The individual pulled from the canal was identified as a male in his 20’s or 30’s. He was wearing athletic clothing and there were no obvious signs of foul play, according to police officials.
