The body of a man was found in a retention pond Monday morning in north suburban Zion.

Officers responded about 11:30 a.m. after maintenance workers from a nearby apartment complex saw the body in the pond in the 1500 block of Lorelei Drive, according to Zion police.

Aaron Ramos, 25, of Zion, was pulled from the pond, according to Lake County Coroner Howard Cooper. Autopsy results are awaiting toxicology tests, Cooper said.

Zion police are continuing an investigation into the death, Cooper said.

“We have been in contact with Aaron’s family and our deepest condolences go out to them during this difficult time,” Cooper said.
