Body found near Edith and Martin Luther King NE

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — A body was been found in front of Longfellow Elementary School on Edith near Martin Luther King JR NE Friday morning, according to a spokesman for the Albuquerque Police Department.

Officer Simon Drobik said preliminary investigation suggests no foul play was involved.

He didn’t say how the person died or identify them.

Drobik wrote in an email that the discovery of the body led to a “large police presence” in the area and westbound lanes of Martin Luther King were closed from Walter to Edith while police investigated. Eastbound lanes remained open.
