PETALUMA (CBS SF) — A dead body believed to be of a man was found at a Petaluma park Monday afternoon, a police sergeant said.

Officers responded to a report of a deceased person at Shollenberger Park at 1400 Cader Lane around 2:50 p.m., Petaluma police Sgt.  Ed Crosby said.

Arriving officers and detectives went to the park where they found the body in underbrush at a small encampment that was not visible from a walking trail, Crosby.

The body did not show “obvious signs of foul play,” according to Crosby.

The body was turned over to the Sonoma County coroner’s office for an autopsy, Crosby said.
