Body Found in Pond at Blytheville Park

BLYTHEVILLE, AR - Foul play is not suspected in the death of a Blytheville man whose body was found floating face down in a city park pond.

The family of 22-year-old Byron Jerome Robinson says he could not swim.  Robinson's body was found Tuesday night in Walker Park Pond.  Yesterday would have been the man's 23rd birthday.

Police Lieutenant Dave Flora says there were no markings on the body that would indicate foul play.  Robinson's family says they had not seen Robinson in a couple of days.

It wasn't known how long the body had been in the pond.  The body is to be sent to the state Crime Laboratory in Little Rock for an autopsy.
