The male victim’s name had not been released as of press time Friday as next-of-kin had not been notified, city spokeswoman Constance Halonen-Wilson said in a phone interview.

The medical examiner had not visited the scene as of press time and the cause of death had not been determined, but detectives found no signs of foul play, Ms. Halonen-Wilson said.
