The Austin police department is investigating a suspicious death after a man's body was found under a bridge near the BMW of South Austin dealership Sunday.

Austin fire and police rescue units were called to a reported land rescue in the 5500 block of the I-35 South service road after a passerby called 911 around 12:06 p.m. and reported seeing a unresponsive man under the bridge along Williamson Creek.
