***UPDATE***: West Des Moines Police have determined this to be a false report.
WEST DES MOINES, Iowa – Police are on the scene at the West Des Moines Library investigating a report that a body was dumped in the pond behind the library Tuesday morning.
Sgt. Jason Heintz with the West Des Moines Police Department told WHO 13 that police crews are investigating around the pond at the library at 4000 Mills Civic Parkway. Detectives also checked out a location in the 1800 block of Fuller Road believed to be linked to the case.
Sgt. Heintz said, “Detectives have already left that address and concluded their investigation at that location.” He also said this wasn’t a swatting call but police are, “trying to determine the legitimacy of claim.”
The call came in shortly after 8:00 a.m. Sgt. Heintz said the caller claimed a body had been dumped into the pond.
