The body was discovered Tuesday morning in a pond near 95th Street and Metcalf Avenue. Police said the body was found floating in a pond at the northwest corner of 95th Street and Metcalf Avenue, said Officer John Lacy, a police spokesman.

Police received a call shortly after 7 a.m. that someone was floating in the pond. Police brought in the Overland Park dive team to retrieve the body.
