Passers-by discover a body near Tallahassee's Old City Cemetery and police say it may have been there for days.

Officers got the call at about 8:15 this morning. Crime scene investigators circled a holding pond near the corner of Martin Luther King Boulevard and Park Avenue. It's between a hair salon and an overflow parking library parking lot.

Officers on scene say the body is stuck in a drainage pipe. They say It appears to be a man and he may have been here for days or longer before he was found.

You can see pieces of cardboard lining the ground, along with a blue pillow and at least one trash bag full of belongings right next to the drainage pipe.

We have no word yet on the man's identity or how he died. We hope to have more information later in the day.
