Body Found In Mpls., Police Investigate

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Minneapolis officers are investigating how a man, found in an alley parking lot, died.

Police said a body was found around 4:30 a.m. Friday near Plymouth and Bryant Avenue.

The man, who was in his 20s or 30s, was near the Minneapolis Nutrition Center where people were arriving to make public school lunches.

Officers said there were no visible signs of trauma, but they haven’t ruled if his death was suspicious or natural.

Investigators appeared to focus on an area near a dumpster in the early morning.

The victim’s identity and cause of death will be released by the Hennepin County Medical Examiner’s Office after its investigation.

If you have any information about this incident, call police at 612-692-8477.

    It was an extremely cold night. Cold snaps are heck on the homeless. I remember a cold night like last night when a homeless man crawled into the dumpster where I worked and we accidentally compacted him. Poor guys die every winter and no one cares.

    Minneapolis is full of dead bodies collecting welfare and food stamps, these are the bodies they should be investigating.
