Authorities Identify Man Found Dead Under I-93 Overpass

State police say the man whose remains were found beneath a highway overpass in the South End yesterday is believed to be a 43-year-old Roxbury resident.

State police detectives have tentatively identified the man who was found dead beneath the I-93 overpass in the South End on Monday morning, according to the Suffolk County District Attorney's office.

Auhorities said the man is believed to be a 43-year-old Roxbury resident. However, police will not release his name until family members have been contacted. 

A passerby called 9-1-1 on Monday morning to report seeing the man’s body in a gravelly area beneath Interstate 93 near Albany and Traveler streets just before 8:30 a.m.

Police and the Boston Medical Examiner's office are still investigating the cause of the man's death. Anyone with information on the incident is asked to call investigators at 617-727-8817.
