Boca Raton police said they were called at about 7 a.m. Sunday to South Inlet Park, along the barrier island just north of the Broward County line. 

The Palm Beach Post notes that Palm Beach County Fire rescue also arrived at the scene, in which they later pronounced the man to be deceased. 

Due to the fact that the body was found at a county park, the PBSO has taken over the investigation. 

Authorities said the man was wearing only shorts and showed no visible signs of injuries.

On Monday the PBSO announced that foul play is not suspected in the death of the man. However, his relatives have not yet been notified.
