Ardmore police department said it found a body in the 300 block of Monroe Ave. NE around 8:45 a.m. Thursday, near the Willowbrook Apartments.

The body is believed to be that of a person who had recently gone missing.

David Morris lives on nearby B Street Northeast and said he knew something was out of place when he saw a man in a white suit with a dog.

"And I saw some police cars in the parking lot over here," Morris said. "I thought they were chasing somebody. I didn't realize it was a dead body. I was kind of wondering why he's dead, suicide or murder? That would kind of concern me, after he was killed."

Investigators said they treat each body they find like a murder, but do not expect foul play in this case.

Morris said he has lived in the area for about two years and hardly ever sees police activity.

"Otherwise it's really quiet around here, don't hear much about anything," Morris said.

Police have turned the body over to the state medical examiner to get an official cause of death.

APD said the investigation is still ongoing and will release more information once all the family members are notified.
