Police: Man found dead in Pytel Park had no obvious trauma
A man found dead in Pytel Park showed no obvious signs of trauma, according to San Antonio police.
A Park police officer found the body while doing a routine patrol of the South side park around 8 a.m. Wednesday.
"(He) called out EMS. The man had no vital signs. He was pronounced dead at the scene,” said Sgt. Bobby Bradley, with SAPD.
Bradley said the man, who appeared to be in his late 20s or early 30s, was fully clothed and lying on his back in the parking lot of the park, located in the 6200 block of S. New Braunfels Avenue.
“We're not sure how he got here. Right now, homicide's going to be following up on it,” Bradley said.
A sign posted at the park shows it is closed between the hours of 11 p.m. and 5 a.m.
There is also a gate there, but police said it usually is left open at night.
Bradley said it appears the dead man had been lying there in the park all night long.
As of noon, police had not released his name.
