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.
