The dead body of a 26-year-old man was found in the bushes of a home on Moraga Road in Lafayette on Wednesday.
The man, Michael McDowell, of Walnut Creek, was discovered by a resident of the home just after 3:00 p.m., while the resident was doing yard work.
Police investigators reported to the scene after the resident reported the discovery. Investigators did not initially believe that McDowell was the victim of foul play. A history of health issues are a possible cause of McDowell’s death, although investigators plan to look more into this.
Toxicology tests were run, with results currently pending.
