San Antonio police are investigating the death of a man whose body was found Friday afternoon on the far South Side.

San Antonio police Sgt. Javier Salazar said a U.S. postal worker found the man's body near the intersection of Mauermann and Pleasanton roads.

Salazar said the body was badly decomposed, but couldn't confirm how long the body had lain there before being discovered.

He said it appeared he may have been the victim of a homicide and that his body was taken to that location after his death.

The man's name and age has not been released.

Police are asking anyone with information on this case to call SAPD's Homicide Unit at 210-207-7635.
