PETALUMA (BCN) — A man’s body was found at a dump near Petaluma today, according to the Sonoma County Sheriff’s Office.
Deputies were called to the Sonoma County Central Disposal Site at 500 Mecham Road shortly before 1 p.m. today after employees found the body in a debris pile, according to Sgt. Shannon McAlvain.
Based on its location, the body might have come from a transfer truck coming from the Healdsburg area, McAlvain said.
A preliminary investigation found no signs of foul play in the death, McAlvain said.
The body has been identified as that of a 39-year-old white male, but the man’s name is not being released until his next of kin can be notified, McAlvain said.
An autopsy is scheduled for Friday morning. The death remains under investigation, McAlvain said.
