Investigators on Sunday were working to identify the body of a man found dead Saturday in Franklin Miles Park.

Officers responded around 8:20 p.m. Saturday to a report of a body in the park at Camino Carlos Rey and Siringo Road, Santa Fe police Lt. Lawrence Barnett said. 

Based on evidence gathered at the scene, police "are handling it as a suspicious death," Barnett said.  

Police will release more details once they identify the victim and notify his relatives.

So much for "more details"

For heaven's sake. A dead man in a city park. It doesn't matter which park. It's horrible for the entire town.

This is a neighborhood park, not a tourist attraction.


This will not go well with the gentrified image of Santa Fe to the tourists and realtors :(

Tourists and realtors! Seriously?? Those of us who are locals and live near this park should take your comments as an insult.

Seriously. Can't this town just leave the tourists out of anything? This is a residential park. It's not downtown!
