KANSAS CITY (AP) — Authorities were investigating after two fishermen found a body in a Kansas City area lake.

Jackson County Sheriff’s deputies and Kansas City firefighters were called to Longview Lake just after 4 p.m. Thursday and pulled the body from the water, officials said. The sheriff’s office said it is working with the Missouri State Highway Patrol to determine the identity of the person and how the person died.

It is unclear whether the death was accidental or involved foul play, officials said. An autopsy has been scheduled to try to determine the identity of the body and cause of death.
