Police confirmed a body was discovered near downtown Laramie, Wednesday morning.

Laramie Police Chief Dale Stalder confirmed the body of a white male was found by a local business owner in the alley between Custer and Kearney Street.

Police are not able to confirm the age of the person nor positively identify the individual.

Police do not know whether or not foul play has been involved at this point in the investigation.

"We have a lot of questions to answer still," Stalder said. "We have a lot of work to do."

He added that the police department will not likely have further information to release until tomorrow morning.
