Body Found Behind Canton Marketplace

Authorities are labeling the person's death as "suspicious"

The body of a 20 to 30 year old Hispanic man has been discovered behind the Canton Marketplace, says the Canton Police Department.

According to the department, hunters called the police at 9:27 a.m. after they found a body in the woods behind the shopping center. The man had no identification on his person when he was discovered.

A department press release says that detectives are investigating the death of this man, and have labeled his death "suspicious." 

If you have any information that may help identify the man, the Canton Police Department asks you to call 911.

That's what I was wondering... a hospital is being constructed in back of that mall, bow hunters shouldn't be hunting anywhere near where PEOPLE gather... stray arrows and such... More crime - the price of over-developement?

So there are gun laws afterall.... take that NRA! You can buy weapons you just can't use them! You can only look at them and admire what once was... Not that I care... Do you know that in weapon free America thousands of people die from them - while in no-weapons countries the deaths do not even come close to 100! If that doesn't confince you of the safety differences your not too smart... America is allowing it's populus to be killed needlessly by not ristricting weapons.... at least they should restrict the automatic weapons again...

It was not a man, it was a teenager. He was only staring to live. He was friends with my brother and according to authorities was a suicide which all his friends disagree, they say he would never have done that. Hopefully they did a thorough investigation before and not just assume it was a suicide. His parent were called yesterday and taken to identify the body which came to it being him. They are devastated and so as my brother and all close friends.

Gabby, I had to sit on this comment until I received official word form the authorities. From what I'm hearing, the circumstances are matching up. I cannot speak to the cause of death, however. Thanks for your comment! -Justin
