The body of a man was found near an apartment building in Southeast Columbus Saturday.

Investigators said a man mowing the lawn located the body off Watkins Road and called police.

Homicide detectives have not determined if the man died of natural causes or something else.

"He's been there a couple of weeks from what they say he may be in his 40's (from) what I could tell," said Randy Jackson, who discovered the body.

Police said the victim was lying face-up, wearing a zip up jacket, blue jeans and tennis shoes.

Police have not released a name or cause of death.
