Man's body found at homeless camp

Winter Haven, Florida -- Winter Haven Police are investigating the death of man found in a reported homeless camp Tuesday morning.

According to preliminary reports, a survey crew working along the 900 block of Cypress Gardens Boulevard, the former Solcum Gardens, located the man's decomposing body just before 10 a.m.

Winter Haven Police officers then worked alongside Polk County Sheriff's officials to process the scene, and announced earlier that the man appeared to have been dead for a few days.

Reports sent just after 5 p.m. said officials have not yet identified the man, nor have they determined if foul play was involved. 

The Polk County Medical Examiner will conduct an autopsy to determine the official cause of death. 

10 News will have more on this developing story as information becomes available.
