Officers responded to a 10:45 a.m. dispatch on Saturday to the report of an unresponsive man lying in the water. He was in his early 30s and was "obviously deceased." Medical personnel assisted in removing the man from the water and law enforcement noted no preliminary signs of trauma or indications of foul play. 

The RCPD said an autopsy has been scheduled and the investigation into the death is open and ongoing. The victim's name has not been released.
