Taylor said the multi-agency Tuscaloosa Violent Crimes Unit, which investigates almost every unnatural death in the county, is en route to the scene, where co-commander Marty Sellers is expected to provide updates later Friday.

It is still too early in this case to say if the person in the water died of natural causes or if foul play was likely involved.
