The Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office is investigating the discovery of a man's body found floating in the
Mississippi River.

The East Jefferson Levee District contacted the sheriff's office Thursday after the body was found in the river, at River Road and the River Batture in Metairie.

The sheriff's office said the body appeared to have been in the water for "quite some time."

Homicide investigators are treating it as an "unclassified death" pending the results of an autopsy.
