Homeless man found dead in woods

HIGHLAND FALLS – Highland Falls Police are investigating the death of a homeless man in the village.  Chief Kenneth Scott said the department began looking for the man after local businesses reported they had not seen him for several days and were concerned for his welfare.

A local resident notified the police that a man’s body had been located on Friday evening, January 17, in a wooded area near the Hudson River.

It appears the man, who police did not identify pending notification of relatives, had succumbed to the elements. No foul play was expected.

Highland Falls Police were assisted at the scene by the Town of Highlands Ambulance, Highland Falls Fire Department and the Orange County Medical Examiner’s Office. Autopsy results are pending.
