A man was found dead in a Jacksonville retention pond on Tuesday morning. The incident occurred on Lee Road just north of Atlantic Boulevard, where authorities responded to reports of a drowning around 8 a.m.

According to investigators, a person at a nearby business spotted the man’s body in the water and promptly notified 911. The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office dive team and Jacksonville Fire and Rescue Department worked together to retrieve the man’s body from the pond, where he was pronounced dead at the scene. Despite the lack of visible signs of trauma, police are treating this case as an undetermined death and are currently investigating it further.

The pond is located on an empty lot near an abandoned house, leading authorities to believe that the man did not reside there. Anyone who may have information regarding this incident is encouraged to reach out to the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office through various channels such as phone, email, or CrimeStoppers. The investigation remains ongoing, and more details may be released as they become available.
