Sgt. John Slaughter says around 9:00 a.m. they got a call about a possible body found in Contentnea Creek. It was adjacent to the 2200 block of Willow Springs Drive.

Investigators say an autopsy will be conducted to help identify the body and say at this time it is not linked to any open investigations.
