KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

Police say they are investigating after a body was found inside closed Westport Middle School.

All signs indicate that the person died of natural causes, Kansas City police said Tuesday afternoon.

The body was found about 3:30 p.m. by some kids inside the building. It wasn't immediately clear what the kids were doing there.

The building is owned by the Kansas City School District. It was a charter school for some time before the district reclaimed it and eventually closed it.

The building is at 315 E. 39th St.
