Body found on side of Lantana road

LANTANA, FL (WFLX) - Police have closed off Miner Road in Lantana Tuesday morning after a man's deceased body was found on the side of the road.

Police and crime scene investigators responded to the scene on Miner Road around 5:45 a.m. after a woman on her way to a bus stop discovered the body, Lantana police say.

Officers have Miner Road closed off near the 100 block of Waterside Drive about two blocks west of South Federal Highway. The body was removed from the scene before 8:50 a.m.

There are no details on the age of the man that was found dead or whether this is a case of foul play.

Because the body was found near the border of Boynton Beach and Lantana, Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office homicide units responded to the scene and are assisting in the investigation.
