For the second time in as many days, a corpse was found floating in a body of water in New York City's famed Central Park.

The grizzly discoveries inside the iconic park in the center of Manhattan were "unusual," but apparently coincidental, chief of detectives Robert Boyce said, The Wall Street Journal reported.

The body of a man in his 30s was found Wednesday by a park worker in Swan Lake at the southeastern edge of the park; no signs of trauma were found except for damage to the man's eyes likely caused by lake turtles, Boyce said.

A decomposed body of a man in his 20s or 30s was found Tuesday in Central Park reservoir on the northwest side of the park.

"There's no criminality right now to show either way that this is anything more than a coincidence," Boyce said. "It is unusual for this park though."
