WARREN — Police said there were no obvious signs of foul play but that an investigation was ongoing June 11 after the owner of a property near Toepfer and Groesbeck found a body thought to be that of a 45-year-old man in a field.

Detective Sgt. Stephen Mills said detectives were sent to the field at Edom and Prospect, west of Groesbeck, at about 2 p.m.

“He was found by the property owner a little bit off the roadway,” Mills said. “There were no signs of foul play, no injuries to the body, no drag marks.”

Mills said the man had Florida identification on him and that it appeared he had been dead less than 24 hours.

The name on the identification card matched an entry in a law enforcement database but a final positive identification remained pending.

The body was sent for an autopsy and Mills said police would also seek a toxicology report to determine how the man died.
