Scranton, Lackawanna County -- Police have a suspicious death case on their hands after a man's body was found at Nay Aug Park.

The deadly discovery happened Sunday morning around 6 o'clock.

Someone walking near the park's pool area spotted the body of 37-year-old Kevin Lawrence of Scranton.

Lackawanna County Coroner Tim Rowland says it appears Mr. Lawrence wasn't injured but considers the death suspicious.

Debbie Stezar of Scranton routinely walks her dogs at Nay Aug. She worries about what led to the man's death. "If it were to come out that the person was actually murdered in the park or whatever, you know, then you know of course you have to be careful."

The coroner's office has scheduled a forensic examination Monday in connection with the suspicious death.
