INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Detectives with the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department Homicide Unit said they are investigating after a man’s body was found on the city’s east side.

IMPD officers were dispatched on a report around 6 p.m. Thursday to the 3300 block of Station Street on a report of a body found. Behind a vacant residence, officers found a person who appeared to be deceased with a defect on his body, said a news release from IMPD. The release did not specific what was meant by “a defect.”
