STREETSBORO, Ohio -- The body of a man was discovered in a three-foot deep ditch in shallow water in Streetsboro Thursday evening.

According to Streetsboro Chief of Police Darin Powers, a call came in at around 5:45 p.m. after a neighbor discovered the body.

When officers arrived on Invernest St., they discovered the body of a male facedown in the ditch.  The discovery was made on the property of a home that is being renovated.

After an examination of the scene and the body, police say there were no signs of foul play and it appears the death may be accidental.

The investigation is still ongoing with the body being taken to the Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner's Office for an autopsy.

The male was identified Thursday evening, but police are not revealing his name at this time.  He's described as a white male and appears to be in his 20s, about 5'7", and about 125-140 lbs.
