ST. CLAIR SHORES (WWJ) - St. Clair Shores police are investigating after an unidentified body was pulled from Lake St. Clair. 

Police told WWJ Newsradio 950 that the body was found Thursday afternoon, a short distance from the shore in the area of Jefferson Avenue and 12 Mile Road. 

It's not known if this was a drowning or if foul play is suspected, as circumstances surrounding the death remain unclear at this time.
