Hours before Tuesday’s game between the Cincinnati Reds and Atlanta Braves at SunTrust Park in Atlanta, a third-party contractor found the dead body of a man from the same company in a walk-in freezer.
Officer Sarah O’Hara of the Cobb County Police Department said the discovery was “still an active investigation so I am unable to speculate whether or not foul play is a factor” in comments published by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
The victim has not been identified, and a cause of death was not immediately released. That will come from the medical examiner’s office.
The game, the second of the three-game series between the two teams, started at 7:35 p.m. ET as scheduled.
