Juneau police are investigating the death of a 63-year-old man, whose body was found near Twin Lakes Park.
Just after 11 a.m. Sunday, someone called police to say a man was lying down in a ditch across the street from the park. Emergency medical personnel and Rainforest Recovery responded and found Gregory Dockery in a pool of water.
Police say Dockery did not suffer any apparent injuries. An autopsy has been requested.
According to police, Dockery apparently moved between a number of communities, including Juneau and St. Petersburg, Fl.
