FAIRFIELD — A woman driving on West Texas Street, who stopped to secure a loose dog early Sunday afternoon, stumbled upon a dead man’s body in the nearby bushes.
Fire, police and the coroner’s office responded to the scene across the street from the transportation center off Beck Avenue.
The deceased appeared to be a transient, said Sgt. Dean Pilchur, of the Fairfield Police Department. The death appeared to be from natural causes as no evidence of foul play was found, Pilchur added.
The body was transported to the coroner’s office.
