A man whose body was found on the side of a road in Lower Merion on Saturday morning is believed to have died at another location and was "placed at the scene" where he was found, the Montgomery County District Attorney's Office said in a news release.

According to investigators, officers responded just before 7:30 a.m. to reports of a male on the side of the 1600 block of Spring Mill Road, near the Philadelphia Country Club in the Gladwyne section of Lower Merion Township. Police found a dead man along the roadway's grassy shoulder.

The DA's release said that "initial investigation revealed the victim died at another location and was placed at the scene" but it gave no further details on why authorities believe that to be the case.

Investigators were attempting to identify the man and an autopsy has been scheduled.

A DA's spokeswoman said no further details were available Sunday afternoon. Anyone with information on the case is asked to call Lower Merion police at 610-649-1000 or the Montgomery County Detective Bureau at 610-278-3368.
