PHOENIX, Ariz. -- In Phoenix, police say authorities are trying to figure out what caused the death of a long time reporter for the Arizona Republic.

Phoenix police say 59-year-old Glen Creno was discovered by his ex-wife face-down in a backyard pond at his Ahwatukee home Saturday night.

Officers say there are no indications of foul play.  Creno's ex-wife says he had a history of epileptic seizures. The medical examiner will determine the cause of death.
