SALISBURY — The body of a 52 year-old homeless man was discovered early Monday afternoon behind the old Salisbury mall and Twilley Centre on Civic Avenue.

A caretaker from the Twilley Centre discovered the body among thick shrubbery behind the shopping center, said Lt. Cheryl Rantz of the Salisbury Police Department.

An investigation indicated there was no foul play that contributed to the man’s death. Police speculate the homeless man had just wondered to that area.

“It looked like he died of natural causes,” Rantz said. “There was indication that he had received medical treatment recently.”

Police said the man has been identified. “I wouldn’t say it was a friend but the person had made contact with him before,” she said.
