Pineville police investigating body found in College Park
The Pineville Police Department is investigating a body that was found in the College Park area on Thursday evening.
PPD said they received a call about the body around 4:41 p.m.
According to PPD, homeowners on Lakeshore Drive in College Park were cutting grass in their yard when they smelled something strange. They looked around and came upon the body behind their house. Then, they called the police right away.
Deputy Chief Darrell Basco said they know the subject is a male, but they do not know the identity, race, or age. They do not know the cause of death either. PPD said the decomposition of the body and other factors prevented identification at this time.
PPD is working with the Rapides Parish Coroner's Office to assist in the identification and autopsy results.
The investigation is ongoing. We will provide updates when we receive them.
