TULSA -- Police are investigating after a body was found in south Tulsa Friday afternoon.

Police say when they arrived, they found a white male dressed in all black with a bag around his head. The body was found on the 7500 block of South Wheeling Avenue.

Police say they received a call around 2:30 p.m. that a man's body was found wedged in a spillway. According to police, there aren't any signs of trauma and the man's hands weren't tied. Police say they are unsure if the incident is a murder or a suicide.

"He's positioned in such as where he's right by where the spillway comes out. There's a lot of water coming through there, so it's washed away anything that would indicate maybe who he was or what happened at that point. And he could've been in the viaduct system itself," said Sergeant Dave Walker.

Police also released photos of the man's clothes (pictured below) in hopes that someone will be able to help identify the body.

Anyone with information is asked to call Tulsa Police at 918-596-9222.
