The Flagler County Sheriff's Department along with the State Attorney's Office is investigating a suspicious death in Palm Coast.

The Sheriff's office says it received a call around 2:45 p.m. Friday about a strange odor behind a house on Covington Lane in Palm Coast.

Police say when they arrived they found the body of a middle-aged white man in a marsh. The body was sent to the medical examiner's office for an autopsy that is scheduled for Monday.

The man's identity will be released once next of kin is notified.
