Lt. Ray Del Greco, an Albuquerque police spokesman, said the man’s cause of death is unknown and will be determined by autopsy.

He said the death is considered “suspicious” but homicide detectives are investigating.

Del Greco said around 11 a.m. people walking along the bosque bike path found the man’s body near Atrisco and Regina NW and called police. He said the man had been dead “for some time” and evidence at the scene suggested it may have been from natural causes.

Del Greco said detectives are searching the area for more clues and the body will undergo an autopsy to determine how he died.
