Orange County deputies look into suspicious death after man…

ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. – A man’s body was found on the side of an Orange County road Monday afternoon and deputies are investigating it as a suspicious death.

The discovery was made around 5 p.m. along Dennis Avenue, the Orange County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies said they received reports of an unresponsive man in the area of 1704 Dennis Ave. Passersby said it looked like the man was sleeping, but when they weren’t sure, they called 911.

Orange County Fire Rescue arrived and pronounced the man, who appeared to be in his 30s or 40s, dead.

It’s possible the man’s body could have been left in the area, but there were no signs of trauma to his body, which is why his death is considered suspicious, deputies said.

The man has been identified, but deputies will not release his name until his family is notified.

No other information has been released.
