Death Investigation Underway Near Grantville Bike Path

San Diego police were investigating a suspicious death underneath a Grantville bridge and near a bike path Thursday.

A body was found submerged in the San Diego River underneath a bridge along Camino Del Rio North across from SDCCU Stadium overnight, prompting a response from SDPD.

Officers had to use a rope, provided by firefighters, to climb down to where the body was found, SDPD Sgt. Paul Conley said. 

The cause of death was not immediately obvious so detectives were called, a homicide sergeant told NBC 7.

After further investigating the body, SDPD said there were not obvious signs of trauma. They were unable to determine the gender or identity of the person. 

The sergeant did not confirm if the death was being investigated as a homicide. 

The scene detectives were investigating was between what is unofficially known as tank farm and a bike path that connects to Interstate 8, the sergeant said.
