Wichita, KAN. (WIBW)--A fisherman made a grisly Easter Sunday discovery along the banks of the Arkansas River in Wichita. Investigators combed the river banks after a body was found floating in the water.

Authorities also said there's no apparent injury to the body or how long it's been in the water. Police there said they have no indication of foul play in the case.
