Man Found Dead Near City Hall Sunday Morning

Police have not released any identifying information, as the investigation into the cause of death continues.

Police confirmed the body of a 34-year-old homeless man was found near Malden Government Center Sunday morning, though his name has not yet been released pending the findings of a police investigation.

Detectives could not say if the death was an accident or related to foul play at this time.

"The matter is under investigation at this time so we cannot comment further on a possible cause of death," Lt. Det. Marc Gatcomb said. "The matter is being investigated by Malden and State Police detectives."

Gatcomb said the man was "known to the department" and a staple of the city's homeless population.

Anyone with information about the circumstances are urged to contact Malden Detectives at (781) 397-7181.

Any more word on this? I don't want anyone -- mayor, police, patch -- to be able to just sweep this under the rug. Thanks.

Maybe there isnt because of further investigation. They can't say anything right now.
