New Jersey State Police are investigating after a body was found Saturday in the Laurel Lake section of Commercial Township in Cumberland County.

Police at the Port Norris Barracks said Saturday night that investigators were still on the scene in the 400 block of Aster Road at about 7:40 p.m., about three hours after the discovery.

It is being investigated as an unattended death, which means it may not be suspicious.

No further information is expected to be available until Sunday.

Police have not said whether the body is that of a man or woman.
