— A man’s body was discovered on South Court Street at approximately 12:30 p.m. Friday, according to Lewisburg Police.

Deputy Chief C.J. Teubert said a call came in from the 911 center about a possible body between True Value Hardware and Mount Tabor Baptist Church.

Upon arrival, police discovered the body of an approximately 40-year-old male in the alley.

At this point, foul play is not suspected, but the investigation is still ongoing. Detective Vance is leading the investigation.

The man’s body has been sent to the state medical examiner’s office for an autopsy. A name will be released pending notification to his family.

Teubert said at this point it is uncertain how long the body had been there before discovery.
