SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - A body was found floating in a Golden Gate Park pond in San Francisco.

Police were called to the pond at Chain of Lakes and Martin Luther King Jr. drives around 8 a.m. Wednesday, said Officer Grace Gatpandan, a spokeswoman for the San Francisco Police Department. A pedestrian spotted the body.

Police had no further details and are investigating.

On Oct. 3, the body of Audrey Carey, a 23-year-old Canadian backpacker was found in the park. She had been camping in the park during a three-day music festival when she was killed. Three young transients are charged with her slaying and killing another man. The three robbed and killed Steve Carter, a 67-year-old yoga tantra instructor while he walked his dog along a popular hiking trail in Marin County, investigators say.
