Gallup Police are investigating a body found across from Long John Silver’s restaurant, and north of the railroad tracks on Gallup’s east side April 16.

The department responded after a caller notified GPD about the body that was found leaning against a wall in a ditch area of the Puerco River.

The individual was only identified as a male. And at this time, the department does not suspect foul play.

The body will be sent off for an autopsy to learn more about the cause of death.

Gallup police learned about a person described as "down and out" around 2 pm today (April 21).

Public Service Officers were sent to the scene at 714 South Second St.  The male individual was not breathing.  Medical professionals were called and determined that the man was deceased.

At the time of this report (3:04 pm) GPD Captain Erin Toadlena-Pablo said police officers had not yet made their way to the scene.

The male, whose age has not yet been reported, will most likely be sent for autopsy.

Toadlena-Pablo said at that point it will be possible to determine if there was any foul play.
