CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

We are hoping to learn more this week about the body that was pulled from the Corpus Christi Ship Channel on Saturday.

The Nueces County Medical Examiner will perform an autopsy. The process could take a week due to the state of the body, which was in the water for at least a day or more. The body was first spotted in the water around 5 Saturday evening by a person walking near the Ortiz Center. The person is believed to be a man in his 30's to 40's. However, there was no id found on him.
