A man found dead Tuesday morning in Rocky Mount likely did not die as a result of foul play, officials said.
Franklin County sheriff’s Lt. Todd Maxey said deputies responded to the Franklin County-Rocky Mount Industrial Park on Commerce Road about 8:30 a.m. after a passerby reported the body alongside the roadway.
Maxey said the man appeared to have died of self-inflicted injuries overnight but declined to elaborate. He said the body would be taken to the Roanoke medical examiner’s office for an autopsy.
Investigators believe they know the man’s identity, but Maxey would not comment on where he lived.
