A pedestrian walking in the area of Julie Drive and McKee, in the Mossman area, found an unresponsive male Aug. 29. When paramedics arrived, they confirmed that he was deceased. Gallup Police Department officers responded to the scene at about 8:13 am.

GPD Capt. Marinda Spencer said foul play isn’t believed to be a factor in this case. As of press time, police haven’t released the victim’s name, pending notification of next of kin. According to GPD Officer John Gonzales’s report, a witness walking in the area said he was told by one of two men walking together about the down and out man, and that his name is “Kevin.”

The witness then walked over to the field, north of Julie Drive, and found the man lying under a tree. He took a stick and poked the man, but he was unresponsive.
