Around 8:16 a.m. Boise police responded to a welfare check in the south west corner of Ann Morrison Park. When officers arrived they found one man who was deceased. Detectives from the BPD Criminal Investigation Unit were called to the scene as the death appears to be suspicious in nature. The Ada County Coroner also responded to participate in the investigation and they will release the man’s identity pending notification of next of kin. The cause and manner of the man’s death remain under investigation.
At this time, police do not believe the victim was involved in yesterday’s incident in the same area. Detectives ask that anyone with information, who may have been at the park Wednesday evening or Thursday morning and has not yet talked to police, to please call dispatch at 208-377-6790.
Roads remain open in the area but anyone wishing to access Dog Island is asked to enter via the east gate closest to the fountain in Ann Morrison Park.
