NORFOLK, Va. - Norfolk Police are investigating after a body was discovered in the Elizabeth River on Monday afternoon.

The body was spotted near the boat docks between Town Point Park and the Waterside District.

"I looked down - it looked like a trash bag or a jacket," Corey Roy, who was on a boat at the time, said. "So I grabbed our boat hook and went over and poked it and it kind of rolled and I could see the guys head."

The body was that of an adult male, according to Norfolk Police Public Information Officer Daniel Hudson. At this time, the man has not been identified.
