PENSACOLA, Fla. (AP) -- Police are investigating after a man's body was found at a Confederate monument in Florida.

Police released few details, saying the man's body was found Sunday morning on a Pensacola park bench.

A witness told the Pensacola News Journal that he was doing yard work when he heard two men fighting. One appeared to be in a rage, but the witness could not confirm that the fight was connected to the Confederate monument. The witness declined to give his name.

Police said they were alerted after a passerby found the body. An autopsy is being done to determine the cause of death.
