AUSTIN (Talk1370.com) -- Austin Police are investigating a suspicious death on the city's southwest side Sunday morning.

Officers, acting on a tip from a Sunset Valley resident, responded to the 5900 block of South MoPac, alongside the northbound frontage road, just before 9 a.m. Sunday morning. That resident had reported to Sunset Valley police that they had observed a deceased person in the wooded area along the roadway in a homeless camp.

Police say they found a male with obvious trauma to his body. An autopsy is pending by the medical examiner's office, and the investigation into the circumstances surrounding the death is ongoing.

Anyone with information on the incident is asked to call 512-472-TIPS.
