Homicide investigators have made a preliminary determination that no foul play was involved in the death of a man who was reportedly found in a Newhall community swimming pool Saturday, officials said.

Sheriff’s deputies received the call at 11:37 a.m. and arrived on scene at 11:40 a.m., according to Lt. Mark Slater with the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station. The pool is located at the Apple Park apartments, located on Apple Street, in Newhall, just off Lyons Avenue.

The man, whose body was reportedly found at the bottom of a pool, is approximately 30 years old, according to Supervisor Melanie Flores with the Los Angeles County Fire Department.

Investigators with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Homicide Bureau completed an initial investigation, and are awaiting the results of an autopsy, Slater said.

Medical examiners with the Coroner’s Office are expected to release the cause of death after the autopsy. The identity of the deceased can be released by the Coroner’s Office pending the official notification of the decedent’s next of kin, which had not happened as of 3:30 p.m., according to Robert Fierro with the coroner’s office.
