Gallup Police Department was dispatched to the Allison Road near Maloney Avenue Saturday morning, near the I-40 overpass, in response to a deceased male.

GPD Public Information Officer Capt. Marinda Spencer said they received the call shortly before 10 am, and that the man had no identification on his body. He's believed to be Native American, between 40-50 years of age. She said he's about 6 feet tall and weighs between 200-230 pounds.

Foul play isn't suspected at this time, but Spencer said the Office of the Medical Investigator is working the case.

"Hopefully (OMI) can run some fingerprints and we can get his identification," she said.
