LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) -- Lawrence police say it could take a while to identify the badly decomposed body of a man who was found in a city park.
The Lawrence Journal-World reports a couple from out of town reported seeing a body lying face-down in shallow water west of Vermont Street bridge on Sunday.
Police Sgt. Craig Shanks says because of the condition of the body, it likely will be some time before a positive ID and cause of death are determined.
Suzanne Conley says she and her boyfriend discovered the body during a holiday weekend visit to Lawrence, where she attended the University of Kansas in the late 1980s.
Police are awaiting the results of an autopsy by the Douglas County Coroner's Office.
