Albuquerque police say a man was found dead near Edith and Central early Tuesday by someone walking in the area.
The person who discovered the body initially thought the man was sleeping.
Police think the dead man may have been recently released from the hospital, because a hospital wristband was found on his body.
Detectives will make this a full violent crimes call out to rule out all possibilities.
OMI will conduct an autopsy to determine the man's cause of death.
