Anchorage police say they are investigating the death of a man discovered in Chester Creek at about 9:30 a.m. Saturday morning.

According to APD spokeswoman, Anita Shell, the man's body was found by a woman who was walking her dogs near 19th Avenue and C Streets. 

Shell wrote in a press release that officers discovered the lifeless body of a Native male between the ages of 40 and 50 years old, partially submerged in the creek.
