RENO, Nev. ( & KRNV) -- Reno Police have responded to the 1900-block of Valley Road after a body was discovered in an irrigation ditch.

According to Officer Tim Broadway, a nearby resident discovered the body around 4 p.m. in a flowing irrigation ditch. The body was found floating where the dam spillway transitions from Valley Road into agriculture land.

The body is male and he appears to have been deceased for a few days. It is unknown the approximate age or race of the deceased male, or if he had suffered any trauma due to the extent of decomposition to the body.

Due to recent rain, it is also unknown where the person went into the water, compared to where it was discovered.

The unknown male was taken to the Washoe County Medical Examiner’s office where an autopsy will be conducted. Reno Police and the Washoe County Medical Examiner’s office are asking anyone with information to contact the Reno Police Department at 775-334-2155 or Secret Witness at 775-322-4900
