Police are investigating the overnight death of a man whose body was found outside a north Fort Collins business.

The unidentified man's body was discovered at approximately 8:28 a.m. Thursday when Discount Tire employees were taking trash to an enclosed garbage area behind the building, Fort Collins police spokeswoman Kate Kimble told the Coloradoan.

The cause of death has not yet been released, but foul play is not expected.

It is unclear as to whether this man was homeless, but that information will be confirmed following an autopsy.
