The two men were out fishing on Lake Stella in Auburndale, Florida, when they pulled up a man’s body, WFLA reported. One of the men called his father, who called the police after confirming it was a real body.

Investigators said the body is a local resident who recently returned to the area, and was likely in the water for 24-48 hours, WTVT reported. Investigators told WTVT there are no obvious signs of trauma but an autopsy is pending.
