A body was recovered Monday afternoon from the Garfield Park lagoon on the West Side.
Officers responded about 12:30 p.m. to the lagoon near the 3400 block of West Washington Boulevard for a wellbeing check and found the body of a male in the water, according to Chicago Police and the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office. An identity has not been released.
Following an autopsy on Tuesday, the medical examiner’s office did not make a ruling on the male’s cause and manner of death, citing the need for further investigation.
Area North detectives were conducting a death investigation.
