Original Story:

Wichita Falls Police were called to the 1000 block of 5th Street just before 12 noon Saturday after a couple jogging along the river trail found the body of a man on the waters edge near the MPEC.

Initial information from police is that they don't believe the man's death was a homicide, but the possibility cannot be totally ruled out at this time. The man was described only as a white male.

The body will be sent to the Tarrant County Medical Examiners office for an autopsy.
