SHE ADDS INVESTIGATORS ARE SAYING THAT AT THIS POINT THERE IS NO CAUSE TO BELIEVE THE DEATH IS THE RESULT OF A CRIME...

PALM DESERT POLICE DEPARTMENT RECEIVED A CALL FROM UTILITY WORKERS AROUND ONE O'CLOCK THIS AFTERNOON...THEY WERE WORKING IN THE AREA AND FOUND THE BODY.

THE CORONER ARRIVED LATER TO CONDUCT THE INVESTIGATION INTO THE DEATH.

POLICE SAY THEY ARE NOTIFYING RELATIVES OF THE MAN BEFORE THEY RELEASE HIS NAME.

AGAIN, POLICE SAY IT DOESN'T LOOK LIKE THERE WAS ANY SUSPICIOUS ACTIVITY.
