Police have identified a body that was found in a retention pond Saturday between Walmart and the Camden Square Apartments in New Bern.
New Bern police have identified the victim as William McDavid Jr., 64.
A call had come in through a police administrative line at 8:48 a.m. Saturday reporting the body.
Though a low fence surrounds the pond, police said there were no signs of foul play.
“He may have wandered in there,” a spokesman for the department said.
The investigation is awaiting an autopsy report to make any final determinations on the case.
