Body Found in Parkway

As reported by Channel 3.

An excerpt.

CARMICHAEL, Calif. (KCRA) —A man’s body was found Tuesday afternoon floating on an inlet at a popular Carmichael park along the American River Parkway.

Sacramento Metro Firefighters were called just after 3 p.m. to William Pond Park after visitors found the man’s body.

When firefighters got to the scene, people had already recovered the body from the American River and started CPR on the shore of the pond.

The man in his 30s or 40s was pronounced dead at the scene, Metro Fire officials said.

Deputies said there is no evidence of foul play, but park visitors told KCRA 3’s Sharokina Shams that they were asked by authorities if they had heard shots in the area.
