PROVINCETOWN, Mass. (AP) — Authorities say they don't believe foul play led to the death of a man whose body was found on a beach in the west end of Provincetown.

Cape and Islands First District Attorney Michael Trudeau said the name of the man, who was in his late 40s, isn't being released until his next-of-kin is notified. Trudeau said state and local police are investigating but don't have any indications that the death is suspicious. An autopsy and toxicology tests are being conducted.

Provincetown Police Chief Jeff Jaran tells the Cape Cod Times ( that the body was reported to police at about 6:30 a.m. Monday by people walking their dogs.

Police Sgt. Glenn Enos said police don't believe the body washed ashore since it was found well above the tideline, near the deck of the Boatslip Resort.
