Salt Lake City police have identified a man found floating in a city pond as 38-year-old James D. Panovich of Kansas.
Salt Lake City police say they pulled Panovich's body from a pond at Fairmont Park Tuesday morning. They also took another man to the hospital after he was found dripping wet nearby.
Det. Dennis McGowan says they are investigating it as a suspicious death. The medical examiner's office is doing an autopsy to determine the cause of death.
Police say that two people feeding ducks reported the suspicious scene about 9 p.m. Monday.
Authorities say the two spotted a body floating in the water, and a second man on the bank who was acting strangely and was possibly drunk.
