Posted: Sunday, May 17, 2009

ANCHORAGE - Another man's body has been found outdoors in Anchorage, bringing the number to four in 10 days.

The Anchorage Daily News reports that in the latest case, the body was found in Campbell Creek about 1:30 p.m. Saturday. Two bicyclists at Campbell Park saw the man face-down in the water.

Police Lt. Dave Parker says investigators are trying to determine if there are any signs of foul play.

The area is near where a body was found Thursday.

The first body was found May 7 in a wooded area by a participant of Anchorage's annual litter cleanup effort.

The second body was found Tuesday in a tent near the Anchorage jail.

Parker says there are no known connections among the four men.
