A man was found dead under suspicious circumstances Wednesday in Chollas Creek Open Space Park in the Ridgeview-Webster neighborhood.

Officers from the San Diego Police Department‘s Southeastern Division and the Neighborhood Policing Division responded to the area at about 9:30 a.m. and found the body in some tall grass just off of a trail, according to the department’s Lt. Andra Brown.

SDPD homicide detectives were called to the scene due to the “suspicious nature” of the death and discovered the man had sustained unspecified injuries to his upper body.

However, the victim’s name and any further information surrounding the death were not released.

Anyone with information was asked to contacted the SDPD Homicide Unit at 619-531-2293 or San Diego County Crime Stoppers at 888-580-8477.
