High School Students Clean Park, Find Body

Body was found in Anacostia River

High school students who took a trip Thursday to help clean up a Northeast park found more than trash -- they found a man's body floating in the Anacostia River, according to The Washington Post.

About 70 students from The Field School were picking up trash in Marvin Gaye Park as part of a community project when several students saw the body in the water, a school official told the paper.

Police said an autopsy will be conducted to see how the man died.
