Two walkers found a dead body this morning at Fort Taber in New Bedford.  The body was discovered at about 7 am Wednesday morning.  WBSM reports, New Bedford Police quickly shutdown the area to the pubic to begin an investigation. At this point, the DA's office is classifying it as an "unattended death" until the medical examiner inspects the body.

Police say that it appears to be a young man in his 20's, possibly Cape Verdean. Anyone who knows of a missing person matching this description is encouraged to contact New Bedford Police.
