ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – An investigation is underway after Bernalillo County deputies found a body near a ditch in southwest Albuquerque.

A woman walking along side an irrigation ditch on the 1900 block of Blake SW told police she saw what appeared to be a person face down in the water.

Officials arrived on scene and confirmed the person was dead.

Detectives are working with the Rio Grande Conservancy District to lower the water levels.

Investigators say it was a man that was found in the ditch. At this point police do not have a name, age or cause of death. They are waiting for the Office of the Medical Investigator to determine the man’s identity and cause of death.
