A 50-year-old man was found dead in Prospect Park on Sunday night, police said.

Cops found the body of the man, whose name has not been released, lying in a wooded area directly behind the park’s Litchfield Villa, just off of Prospect Park West between 4th and 5th streets, at 10:25 pm, authorities said.

Investigators responding to a 911 call found the man unconscious in back of the historic mansion and he was pronounced dead at the scene, officials said.

No arrests have yet been made and an investigation into the death is ongoing, cops said.

On Monday morning, police and a forensics team were analyzing the scene where the man’s body was discovered.

The Medical Examiner’s Office will try to determine the cause of death.

Reasonable discourse

diehipster is a loser from south brooklyn says:
Another brain dead comment from Diehipster. This has nothing to do with hipsters, probably a local junkie, one of the lost generation here who were hooked on heroin during the 80s when drug dealing was rampant in the neighborhood.

Maybe he was so upset about Googamooga and Nickelodeon destroying the park that the stress overwhelmed him

I'm tired of all those junkies hanging out in the circle on 15th and PPW. Maybe this was one of them. Maybe the rest will follow suit.
