TULSA, Oklahoma -

Police continue to investigate after a man's body was found Tuesday afternoon floating in a Tulsa park pond.

Tulsa Police Sgt. Dave Walker said officers got the call at about 12:30 p.m. to Owen Park in the 500 block of North Maybelle. A man walking his dog spotted the naked body of a white male, floating face down in the pond and called police.

Sgt. Walker said the department's dive team and the Oklahoma Medical Examiner's Office recovered the body of a 35-year-old male, later identified as Nicholas Adams.

He said the body did not appear to have been in the pond for very long. Sgt. Walker said the body had several trauma marks. Because of that and the unusual nature of the death, detectives are treating this as Tulsa's ninth homicide of the year.

"The investigation has not revealed any motive or suspects involved in this case," Walker said. "The Medical Examiner explains that the trauma to the body would not ordinarily be fatal. The Medical Examiner has determined that drowning is the cause of death."

Sgt. Walker says they are still working to identify the body and is asking if anyone has information to call Tulsa Crime Stoppers at 918-596-COPS.
