Heat suspected in Madison park death

Posted:

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Authorities are investigating to see if the death of a 36-year-old man found in a Madison park could be heat-related.

Madison police spokesman Howard Payne tells The Capitol Times that the unidentified man was found dead about 6:15 p.m. Wednesday near a shelter in Brittingham Park.

Payne says the local medical examiner is looking to see if the death could be related to the extreme heat.

Police Sgt. William Quast says there were no noticeable signs of trauma on the body. Quast added there's no reason to believe the public is at risk.
