COLLEGE STATION, Texas (KBTX) - College Station police say a body was found in a creek near Dartmouth Street, Friday morning.

Around 10 a.m., authorities responded to the 1900 block of Dartmouth St. after they received a 911 call reporting a deceased person in Wolf Pen Creek.

College Station Public Information Officer David Simmons says they are calling this a “suspicious death,” at this time.

Simmons said they do not think there is a threat to the public, as they continue to investigate.

“Once we get a positive identification on the person we’re going to have to notify the next of kin,” said Simmons. “Once they have been updated, we will update who they are and if we get any other information we’ll go from there.”

Simmons told KBTX the individual was transported to Travis County medical examiner’s office for an autopsy.

This story will be updated when more information is available.
