ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. —

An autopsy is scheduled Monday to try to find out what killed a man found near an International Drive hotel in Orlando over the weekend.

A father and his teenage son on vacation made the discovery, authorities said.

The body was found in a wooded area near the Marriott Vacation Club Grand Vista.

Jeff Mahanes and his son were fishing in some nearby ponds when the teen noticed the body.

"My son saw something, a suspicious mound.  My son made the comment, ‘Dad, that looks like a body.’  And I said, ‘Stay here,’" Mahanes said.

Investigators said they plan on checking missing person cases to see if they can find a link.
