FARGO, N.D. (Valley News Live) - An investigation is underway after Fargo Police say a dead body was found Monday morning in an industrial area of town.

Police were called to the 3500 block of Main Ave. just after 9 a.m. May 22 for a body floating in a retention pond. The body was pulled by Fargo Police and Fargo Fire crews just before noon. The pond is in the back parking lots of GXO Logistics and Loffler Companies.

The initial investigation indicates the adult man had been in the pond for an undetermined amount of time, police said in a release Monday afternoon.

The body has been transported to the University of North Dakota’s Forensic Pathology Department for an autopsy. FPD states officers do not have reason to believe there is an active threat to the public.
