PHOENIX — Phoenix police sent the dive team out to a canal near 36th Street and Camelback Sunday morning after a dead body was found in the water.

Authorities said the body was discovered just before 10 a.m. by someone who was near the canal.

The body was fully clothed, but police don’t know how long it was in the water.

“There was no indications from our earlier shifts that there was an issue or problem,” said Lt. Stan Hoover. “It does look like this body has been in the water for quite some time and speaking with some SRP representatives it may have moved this far down as far away as 56th street.”

Police have not said if the body is that of a man or a woman, or how old the person may have been.

The body has been taken to the medical examiner’s office for further investigation.
