Council Bluffs Police are conducting a death investigation after a body was found inside the former No Frills Supermarket location at 1817 W. Broadway Thursday morning.

The body was discovered by employees of a contracting firm who were there to remove shelving and coolers from the vacant store, police said Thursday afternoon. Police also said the body appears to have been in the store for an extended period of time.

No Frills closed the West Broadway store in 2016.

No other information about the body is being released at this time, police said.

The Pottawattamie County Medical Examiner’s Office was called to the scene and the body was transported to the Iowa State Medical Examiner’s Office in Ankeny.
