FAIRBANKS - A dead man was found in the woods in west Fairbanks on Thursday afternoon.

Alaska State Troopers in Fairbanks were notified of a man lying face down near a tent in the woods off University Avenue north of Geist Road at approximately 3:25 p.m., according to a trooper news release.

Troopers responded and found a deceased adult male. No visible signs of foul play were discovered and the body is being sent to the state medical examiner for an autopsy.

Troopers did not release the identity of the dead man because next kin had not been notified. The investigation is ongoing pending the outcome of the autopsy.

Contact the newsroom at 459-7572.
