NORCROSS -- Police say a dead man with head injuries was found behind a Norcross office complex early this morning.
Exactly how he died -- and who he was -- is under investigation, but police are calling the death suspicious.
Gwinnett police responded at 2:29 a.m. Monday to a call about a suspicious person sleeping or possibly dead behind a building at 25 Technology Parkway South, located in an office park off Peachtree Industrial Boulevard. Gwinnett police spokesman Cpl. Edwin Ritter said the building houses several businesses.
When officers arrived, they discovered the man dead, "with several head injuries from an unknown origin," Ritter said. The cause of death is unknown, pending an autopsy.
The man had no identification or anything that would suggest who he was. Ritter said there's no indication of how old the man is, or that he was homeless.
Investigators described the man as a large frame white male, between 5 feet, 10 inches and 6-foot-2 tall, weighing about 200 pounds. He has two tattoos, one being "very unique" and in a unique location on the body, Ritter said.
"A description of the tattoo will not be released at this time," he said, "in hopes that anyone who is intimately familiar with the male will come forward and help identify (him)."
Ritter said a cleaning crew initially spotted the man and called police.
