Unidentified remains found near Burns Park

The body of an unidentified male was recovered Saturday from the backwater area behind Burns Park.

The site is about a half-mile from the Burns Park boat ramp.

At about 10:30 a.m. Saturday, the North Little Rock Police Department contacted the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Office for assistance, according to a press release from Sheriff’s Office Lt. Carl Minden. PCSO investigators and water patrol responded to the location.

The body of an unidentified male was retrieved from the water and turned over to the Pulaski County Coroner’s Office and the Arkansas State Crime Laboratory for identification and cause of death.

The investigation has since been taken over by North Little Rock Police. No further details are available at this time.
