A body has been discovered near the abandoned zoo on Belle Isle in Detroit.

Michigan State Police and the Michigan Department of Natural Resources' law enforcement division are investigating the incident.

State police said in a media release that a citizen made the discovery just after 7:30 p.m. Sunday.

Officers said it appears the body was at the spot it was discovered "for a long period."
