Lt. Dave Parker says police set up a crime scene investigation at the site near Centennial Park in the city's Muldoon section.

Since early May, seven other men have been found dead in woods, parks and illegal camps.

Police say the men were either homeless or familiar with life on the street

Parker says alcohol was a factor in most of those deaths. But he adds that toxicology tests are still pending on two of the cases.
