Man’s body dumped in Tacony

Au­thor­it­ies have not de­term­ined the of­fi­cial cause of death of a man whose body was dumped along the 6400 block of Cot­tage St. on Sept. 23, al­though a sus­pect has been ques­tioned in the case.

Po­lice went to the scene at 4:05 p.m. in re­sponse to a re­port of a “hos­pit­al case.” They found the 42-year-old man un­con­scious. He was taken to Aria Health-Tor­res­dale and pro­nounced dead.

There were no ob­vi­ous signs of trauma. His name has not been re­leased.

Wit­nesses told po­lice that someone had driv­en the body to the scene shortly be­fore po­lice were no­ti­fied. De­tect­ives loc­ated and ques­tioned the driver but have not filed crim­in­al charges against him.

An of­fi­cial cause of death re­mains un­der in­vest­ig­a­tion by the med­ic­al ex­am­iner’s of­fice. ••
