BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

Emergency officials say deputies with the East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff's Office are investigating a body found in a pond off of O'Neal Lane.

The cause of death has not been determined, but Sheriff Sid Gautreaux said foul play is not suspected. The coroner added there were no obvious signs of trauma on the victim's body.

The pond is located in the 15800 block of Fawn Ridge Drive in the Deer Lake subdivision.

A neighbor in the area told WAFB they saw something floating in the pond. The resident got into a boat and paddled out. The resident realized it was a body and they called the sheriff's office around 10 a.m. 

Officials with EBRSO say the body is male.

An autopsy has been scheduled for Thursday.
