ST. CLOUD - A dead body was found in southeast St. Cloud Sunday morning.

St. Cloud Assistant Police Chief Jeff Oxton says the body was found Sunday morning around 9:45 a.m. by someone walking their dog. The body was found in a wooded area by the 500 block of Lincoln Avenue Southeast about 50 feet from the railroad tracks.

Authorities say they have a prelimanry ID on the body, but are just saying it was a middle-aged male until the Anoka County Medical Examiner's Office confirms the identity.

Police do not suspect any foul-play and say it does not appear to be related to the railroad tracks.
