A woman's body was found in the water near Liberty Station in San Diego on Tuesday, the San Diego Police Department (SDPD) confirmed.
Police say they received reports of a woman's body floating in a channel near the shoreline at Farragut Road at approximately 4:27 p.m., near NTC Park.
The body was pulled out of the water.
An investigator on scene told NBC 7 that it appeared the woman had been dead for some time because her body was badly decomposed.
The Medical Examiner's office is performing an autopsy. On Wednesday, SDPD Officer Josh Hodge said the autopsy had not yet been completed.
Hodge said that if anything in the autopsy report suggests the woman's death was suspicious, the SDPD's Homice Unit will take over the investigation.
No other information was immediately available.
