    "Sometimes, there are a lot of people walking around alone in the park," said resident Michelle Side. "There's a dog park right in that area and a lot of people do go to that dog park at night."

    The man was found more towards the entrance of the park. The field lights were left on Wednesday night to illuminate for detectives as they processed the scene.

    "It's pretty dead in the winter. In the summer, they have the lights on all night, so it's super busy in the summer, so it feels more safe," Side said. "The winter is always dead."
