SHREVEPORT, La. (AP) - Police say a man's decomposed body was found in a park near downtown Shreveport.
Sgt. Bill Goodin says investigators could not even tell the man's race. He says the body was found Wednesday morning against a fence on a wood line near an old baseball field in Princess Park.
No identity has been established and it's unclear how long the man had been dead.
Goodin said Thursday there was no obvious indication of foul play, but police will treat the death as a homicide until the coroner can determine a cause of death.
