Dale County authorities continue to investigate the discovery of a body in an Ozark pond.

Officials responded to a call at a pond on Stratford Drive around 4AM Sunday.

There, police found the body of a white man.

His name has not been released and his body is being examined at the forensics lab in Montgomery.

Marlos Walker, Police Chief of the Ozark Police Department says, "We always want to make sure that the medical examiner is able to do an autopsy to determine first, because sometimes you do find people that have been deceased but there are natural causes. There are other alternatives to death that also play in there. So the first thing we want to do is get a determination on the cause of death."

Ozark Police and Dale County Sheriff's investigators have interviewed family members and friends of the man to track his previous whereabouts.
