Members of the man’s family were notified by his employer when he did not show up for work. The family found the man and called police about 9:45 a.m., said Lieutent Mark Decroteau, spokesman for the Melrose Police.
The man's name has not yet been released by police.
The office of the chief medical examiner has taken the case, but has yet to determine if foul play was involved, Decroteau said. Melrose detectives processed the scene of the death, he said, but the case is not being actively pursued as a homicide.
