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.
