Police have identified the body found at an Eclipse playground Tuesday afternoon but are awaiting family notification before releasing the identification, a city spokeswoman said Wednesday.

She also said that no cause of death has been determined for the 22-year-old male body that was found in a playground at the Nansemond Swim Club in Eclipse on Tuesday, but that police do not suspect foul play.

According to a police department incident report released Thursday, the swim club property manager found the body in the area of a children’s swing and slide set during a walk-through of the property.
