Skinker Boulevard sometime between 5 a.m. Saturday morning and 9:12 a.m., when a jogger discovered the body and informed authorities.

The victim was pronounced dead on the scene and there were no signs of foul play, according to the report. But SLMPD declined further comment because the investigation is ongoing.
