The Richmond County Sheriff's Office responded to a call on the corner of Telfair Street and 13th Street, where a body was found floating in the canal. A fisherman told deputies he found a man laying face down in the water around noon today.
Investigators say the body appears to be an African-American male, and there does not appear to be any signs of foul play involved.
After the body was recovered they transported it to the GBI crime lab for an autopsy.
