Police are trying to identify a badly decomposed body found Thursday morning inside a shed at a Brooklyn pool.Authorities say the gruesome discovery was made just before 10 a.m. at the McCarren Park Pool on Lorimer Avenue between Bayard Street and Driggs Avenue in Williamsburg.

Parks workers told police a foul odor had been coming from a shed at the pool for months. The workers reportedly found the body when they went to the shed to retrieve some equipment.

It is not known precisely how long the body had been inside the shed. The area is said to be frequented by homeless people.

So far, there is no identification of victim. Police do not even know the race or sex.

The medical examiner will determine the cause of death.
