Baton Rouge police are investigating the discovery of a body in a canal.
A fisherman found a woman in the water near Alamonster and Greenwell Street, yesterday afternoon. Officials said the body appears to be that of a white woman.
Investigators believe she'd been in the water a relatively short period of time.
The victim has not been identified and an autopsy will be performed.
