No foul play suspected in death of man found in pond at Germantown-Memphis border

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - A body was discovered in a shallow pond on Poplar Avenue near a large office building.

Memphis Police Department said a security officer told a person inside a private ambulance, that happened to be in the parking lot, about the body. The paramedic then called police.

Officers found the body just before 7 p.m. Tuesday. They were skeptical at first that there could be a body in the shallow water, but found what appeared to be a man.

MPD said Wednesday that there was no foul play suspected in the death.

[Editor's note: An earlier version of this story said the body was found in a Germantown pond. That has been corrected to reflect that the pond is in Memphis (which is why MPD is investigating). The confusion occurred because the office building next to the pond is in Germantown, and the office building was cited as the address of the incident.]
