Police received a call around 5:45 a.m. Wednesday about an adult male found in a ditch off the eastbound side of U.S. 50 between the Motel 6 and River Drive. The body was discovered by construction workers.

California Highway Patrol described the deceased as approximately 34 years old. While the incident occurred within the city of South Lake Tahoe, police asked CHP to lead the investigation.
