Abilene police said that the call came in at about 9:00 Thursday morning, and detectives arrived at the scene soon after.
Police believe the man has been deceased since Tuesday, February 4.
No specific identifying information is being given at this time, though police describe the deceased as a white male in his 40s.
APD emphasized that the death investigation is still in a very early, preliminary stage and so additional details such as cause of death, and the circumstances surrounding it, are still being examined and may not be released for some time as evidence collection continues.
