A family made a gruesome discovery while they were out fishing in Lakewood early Saturday afternoon, according to officials with the Lakewood Police Department. 

“I went to go cast my line out and by then, the sun was shining through the water... I looked down and sure enough, there was a dead body just floating right there," said a fisherman, who told police he made the discovery near the fishing docks. 

The body was found near Kipling Parkway and Florida Avenue and once the fisherman and his wife realized it was a dead person, they immediately called 911. 

The identity of the deceased is being determined by detectives working the case. Investigators said in a statement there does not appear to be foul play involved in this case. 

This is an ongoing investigation.
