Body found in pond off C.R. 210 in St. Johns County

A badly decomposed body was found off County Road 210 near Interstate 95 in a pond Tuesday night, deputies say.

Members of the St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office spent hours Tuesday working to retrieve the body after it was discovered by a police helicopter flying overhead, says sheriff’s office spokesperson Chuck Mulligan.

Investigators say they do not know if the body belonged to a man or woman or what might’ve caused the death.

The body is being sent to the Medical Examiner’s Office and an autopsy report is expected Wednesday, Mulligan says.
