CARLISLE, Pa. (AP) - Police and the county coroner are investigating a body found by a code inspector inside a vacant central Pennsylvania building.

The body was found Tuesday about 4 p.m. in Carlisle. That’s about 20 miles southwest of Harrisburg.

Carlisle police says there was no identification on the body, which was face-down and purple when it was found. Police believe the victim may have been Hispanic, but say they can’t be sure of that until after an autopsy by the Cumberland County coroner.

Police hope to identify the man using his fingerprints, but don’t plan to release additional details until the autopsy is complete.

Sgt. Mark Brewbaker says it’s too early to say whether the death is suspicious.
