Fresno County Sheriff's deputies are investigating a suspicious death Saturday just south of Mendota.

Investigators were alerted to a body alongside the bank of the river across from Jack's Resort near Whitesbridge Avenue. Deputies say the body had been there a few days before being discovered by a fisherman.

Because the area is closed off, deputies are hopeful they can pull tire tracks from a dirt road to get a suspect vehicle.

The identity of the victim has yet to be released.
