Police: No signs of foul play in man's death

A couple walking their dog mid-Sunday morning stumbled upon the body of a man in a field northeast of Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Denton in the 900 block of North Bonnie Brae Street at Scripture Street.

As of Sunday afternoon, Denton police officers were still trying to identify the man and investigating his death. Officers estimate the man was in his early 50s, and they also believe the man’s body had been in the empty field for at least two days before being found by the couple.

Police spokesman Shane Kizer said the man’s death does not appear to show signs of foul play, but results of the cause of death won’t be final until police receive the official autopsy report.

The investigation is ongoing.
