An eyewitess, who walks every morning with his friends, told Jamaica Plain Patch they were the ones who found the body . Rueben (of Roslindale) said they found a blonde woman face down in the water. At first, he said, he thought it was a mannequin. When they realized it wasn't, they stopped another person at the pond who had a cell phone and called police.

Boston police have been on the scene all morning.

Jamaica Plain Patch will bring you more information as it becomes available.
