NEW ORLEANS (AP) - New Orleans police say they’re investigating the death of a man found with his neck lodged between posts of an iron fence around a shopping center.

Police say the man was found Thursday morning. The fence is about chest-high with bluntly pointed iron posts a few inches apart.

Officer Garry Flot says the man was a 58-year-old local. He says the coroner will determine the cause of death.

Flot says someone walking by saw the body about 7 a.m. and called police.

NOLA.com/The Times-Picayune reports (https://bit.ly/1Gt8Tbe ) that police put a red tarp over the spot to shield the body from view.
