BURLINGTON, Iowa (AP) — Authorities are investigating the death of a man whose body was found inside an eastern Iowa home.

The Hawk Eye in Burlington reports that authorities found the body after they were called to a home in Burlington shortly before 2 p.m. Sunday.

Police say they’ve preliminarily identified the man who died but are not yet releasing his name because of the pending investigation and so they have time to notify relatives.

Burlington police say an autopsy has been scheduled and the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigations is working on the case as well.

Authorities did not release any other details. They’re urging anyone with more information to call the Burlington Police Department.
