Neighbors On Edge After Mysterious Death Investigation

A man's body is found in a creek in North Little Rock
NORTH LITTLE ROCK -- A man's body, found in a North Little Rock creek, is leaving people who live nearby on edge tonight.

A couple cyclists found the body of a man in a creek on Batesville Pike just after 2:00 this afternoon.

Detectives say the man had trauma to his head, but they wouldn't answer any questions about his injuries.

In fact, they wouldn't even say if this man was murdered or if his death was an accident.

His body is going to the state crime lab for an autopsy and we should know more about what happened by tomorrow.

In the meantime, people who live nearby will be extra cautious.

Eric Blankenship said, "Be more on alert. I think it would be wise for people to watch for any strange activity or anything like that."

Police don't know much about the victim or where he's from.

Officers only told FOX16 News, he's a white male.
