Police: Body Found in San Jose Creek

San Jose police found a body in a creek Sunday morning.

The San Jose Police Department officers responded to Watson Park in San Jose and discovered a body in the creek next to the park.

Police said that the body was hard to get to because the water was running high from yesterday's rainfall, but it was eventually recovered from the creek by San Jose search and rescue crews

Preliminary investigation by the coroner’s office revealed that no foul play was involved. Police have not released any other details.

The medical examiner's office confirmed to NBC Bay Area that the victim was a middle-aged male. It is unclear how the man ended up in the water, but investigators said they think the wet conditions may have caused the man to fall into the creek.
