LAKE COUNTY, OH (WOIO) -

The body of an adult male was found at Mentor Headlands Beach State Park on Tuesday afternoon.

The discovery was made just before 1:00 p.m. on the Painesville Township side of the beach.

A bird watcher spotted the body about 1300 feet west of the lighthouse.

It is not clear how long the body had been there, because the bird watcher tells deputies he frequents that area fairly often and just spotted the body Tuesday.

The body is now being sent to the Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner for a forensic autopsy.
