CHICAGO (STMW) - Police are investigating after a 54-year-old man was found dead in the backyard of his Logan Square home Friday morning on the Northwest Side.
He was found lying unresponsive on the ground behind the home in the 2800 block of West Shakespeare at 9:55 a.m., according to Chicago Police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office. He was dead at the scene.
An autopsy Saturday did not rule on the cause or manner of his death, with final results pending further investigation, authorities said.
A police source said the man was initially called in as a gunshot victim, but while he had injuries to his body, further investigation revealed he had not been shot.
Area North detectives are conducting a death investigation.
