NYPD is investigating the discovery of a deceased man in Central Park’s Harlem Meer where another person was found dead a year ago.

The body spotted Saturday night is believed to be that of a man in his 40s. A horrified woman called 911 at around 7 p.m. to report the finding.

Police pulled the man out of the water and declared him dead at the scene. The cause and manner of death are pending autopsy results.
