The body of a man possibly in his mid-20s was discovered next to North Washington Street Tuesday morning, Oct. 9, in Grand Forks, police said.

Sgt. Travis Benson said there were no obvious signs of foul play, but the body will be taken to the Grand Forks County Coroner's Office for further examination.

“On the surface there was nothing that would suggest any sort of foul play, any sort of trauma or anything that we’ve seen so far,” Benson said.

The body was reported by a passerby near a vacant home in the 700 block of North Washington Street around 10 a.m., Benson said.

At this time identification is being withheld pending family notification.

This is the second time in the past week that a body has been found in public in Grand Forks. The body of a woman was found in Lincoln Drive Park in Grand Forks on Saturday morning. Police said Saturday that there was “no evidence of foul play.”
