A man's body was found inside a boat on the city's west side Thursday, Colorado Springs police said.

Police responded to an address on the 3200 block of West Bijou Street, near West Colorado Avenue, around 4 p.m. after receiving a call from a resident at the address, who described a bad smell in the neighborhood and reported that a neighbor found a body inside a boat on the property.

Investigator said the body, which was found inside the boat's pontoon, had likely been there for several days.

The major crimes unit is on scene, but the death does not appear to be suspicious, police said.
