His body was found face down, lying near a culvert in Peters Creek. It was discovered by someone out walking Friday morning on Delaware Avenue near Logan Road.
So far, officials have not said how he died.
He was wearing slacks, a tee-shirt, sweater, jacket and white socks but no shoes. Wet marks on his clothes indicated that the water had been higher.
“There’s not a lot of water in there, so it couldn’t have gotten washed down from someplace else,” said Gerry Komis, a neighbor.READ MORE: Pittsburgh Public School Board Set To Vote On Return To School Safety Plan
Firefighters were called in to help recover the body, after Bethel Park and Allegheny County Police finished surveying the scene.
There were no signs of foul play, and it is likely a drug-related death.
Komis came home from breakfast to find the investigation underway. The creek runs right behind his backyard.
“We came back, we saw all the cop cars and the helicopter,” he said. “It seems very, very weird. Like I said, it’s usually very quiet around here.”MORE NEWS: South Pittsburgh Coalition For Peace Holds 'Stop The Violence' Rally In Response To Recent Shootings
