CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (AP) — Police are investigating the death of a 60-year-old man who was found in a Cambridge park with traumatic head injuries that may have been caused by a baseball bat found near his body.

Middlesex District Attorney Marian Ryan says Paul Wilson was found unresponsive in Danehy Park at about 7 p.m. Wednesday.

He was taken to the hospital where he was pronounced dead. He lived in a nearby apartment.

Ryan says the death is being investigated as a homicide.

She said police did not know whether the attack was random.

The bat was found in the bushes near the body and police are trying to determine whether it caused blunt force injuries to the victim’s head.

The sprawling 50-acre park includes athletic fields, paths and is popular with dog walkers.
