Police are investigating the death of a man whose body was found Thursday afternoon in the woods of Cobbs Creek Park in West Philadelphia.

Cops said the decaying body was found in the woods off of Race Street near Daggett shortly before 2:30 p.m. The man remains unidentified, and preliminarily, police are unsure of his age.

So far, it's unclear how the man died or how long he's been dead. No weapons were found in the area, and the death remains under investigation.
