BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) -

Birmingham police are investigating a body found in the city's west end.

Investigators say a man found a body floating in a creek underneath a bridge and alerted an officer at a nearby store on Center Street.

At this time, police don't believe foul play is involved but they're not ruling that out. They believe the man's body has been in the creek for some time now from the condition of the remains. As far as the cause of death, they are still waiting on the coroner's report.

"Of course, there's a lot of bricks inside those waters that could have caused some damage to the body, but we're not quite sure right now the cause of death," said Sgt. Johnny Williams with Birmingham PD.

Police say because the creek runs for miles, so the man may not be from this area.
