Saturday morning, Highland Park officers conducted a crime scene in the 4500 block of Mockingbird Lane for what is being labeled as an unexplained death.
Highland Park DPS spokesman Sgt. Lance Koppa said officers responded at 7:50 a.m. to a call from a passerby who saw a deceased body in the front yard of a Mockingbird home. HPDPS secured the scene and found a handgun near the man. Information from the investigation suggests that there are no suspects to be sought at this time nor is there anyone at large, Koppa said.
Koppa said they are awaiting the manner and cause of death from the medical examiner’s office.
