Police: Body found floating in Scottsdale canal

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.

The investigation will continue with the help of the County Medical Examiner’s Office.
