Police are working to identify a body that was found face down in a retention pond off of Cheney Highway Saturday afternoon.

Authorities believe the body has been in the pond less than 12 hours, and said it appears the legs were stuck in the mud.

It's still unclear whether or not the body was dumped or if it was someone who died while walking alongside the highway.
