Police are investigating a report of a dead body found in Duluth on Tuesday morning. 

Just before 10:30 a.m., Duluth police announced that its officers were at the scene on the Lakewalk near the Duluth Rose Garden, which is located on the northeast side of the city near the shore of Lake Superior. 

"We are asking the public to stay away from the area as we are investigating the scene. No further information is available as it’s an active scene," police said. 

The death investigation comes one day after the St. Louis County Sheriff's Office announced the discovery of the dismembered remains of a missing St. Paul man that were found in Lake Superior about 145 miles northeast of Duluth. 

There is nothing to indicate at this time that Tuesday's death investigation is related.
