The Canandaigua Police Department is actively investigating two deaths that were reported earlier today.
Authorities say that the first death was reported around 9:15 am when a passerby observed a body in the water in the area of City Pier. They say the second body was reported when a citizen discovered it in a wooded area behind the Pizza Hut on South Main St. around 1:15 pm.
