The body of a 61-year-old man was found in an Eagle canal Tuesday, according to the Ada County Coroner.

The cause and manner of death are pending toxicology results, but the coroner says no traumatic injuries were identified during the autopsy and foul play is not suspected.

The case is under investigation.
