YONKERS, N.Y. — Westchester County Police are working to identify a man’s body that was found alongside the Bronx River Parkway in Yonkers Saturday morning.

Authorities say a motorist driving southbound about 4:40 a.m. noticed the body off the shoulder of the parkway, south of the Scarsdale Road exit. The motorist stopped and called Westchester County Police.

The deceased is described as a middle-age white or Hispanic male. He was partially clothed when he was found.

Detectives from the General Investigations Unit are working to determine the cause of death and the identity of the deceased. An autopsy will be performed by the Westchester Medical Examiner’s Office as part of the investigation.

It also has yet to be determined whether the man died at the scene or elsewhere.

Detectives are interviewing residents of the surrounding neighborhoods. Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call the county police at 914-864-7701. All calls are confidential.
