Man found dead near Walnut Creek

The Austin Police Department is asking for the public's help after a man was found dead near Walnut Creek Monday afternoon. 

The body was found at 2000 Park Bend Dr., according to Austin-Travis County EMS. 

ATCEMS responded to a wilderness rescue call and found a black male in his 30's or 40's dead on the scene. EMS cleared the scene.

At this point investigators said it's too early to classify this as a suspicious death. 

"It's still really early in the investigation and we just have preliminary details. We are calling it right now a deceased person. But during the course of the investigation that could change. Detectives are working to gather evidence," said Austin Police officer Destiny Winston.
