A member of a Marathon Public Works crew working in the area said he smelled something, walked a short distance into a wooded area and found the man, lying on his back. Dead.
Detectives say they do have a tentative identification, but the body was decomposed and the Medical Examiner will have to do some further work to confirm it. The body is believed to be that of a white male who may have died up to several weeks ago.
Investigations into the circumstances of the death continue.
