Autopsy Pending for Body Found in New Bedford Park
NEW BEDFORD — The results of an autopsy and toxicology are pending for a man's body found last week in a New Bedford park, according to a spokesperson for the Bristol County District Attorney's Office.
The D.A.'s office stated that the 35-year-old homeless man was found dead on Thursday afternoon in Riverside Park.
His body showed no obvious signs of trauma, according to the spokesperson.
Authorities are treating the incident as an unattended death, the office noted — meaning the man likely died alone.
He is not being identified.
In a Facebook post last Thursday at around 3:30 p.m., New Bedford police stated that officers and state police were investigating after the man was found dead in the park.
Police added that there were no obvious signs of foul play.
