(KMOV)-- Police are investigating after a body was found in Forest Park in St. Louis Friday evening.

Police got the call just before 5 p.m. after someone reported finding a body near the Steinberg skating rink.  Homicide detectives were called to the scene to investigate.

Authorities are not saying if the body is a male or female or just exactly how the person died.  A preliminary investigation suggests that the person died from a drug overdose.  Detectives said there was drug paraphenalia found near the body.

According to officials, forensic analysis will have to be performed in order to identify the victim.
