An autopsy is scheduled today on the body of a 19-year-old man who was found dead at Saratoga Spa State Park Tuesday morning.
Police have identified the man as Alexander Carsky-Bush, 19, of 23 Horizon Drive, Saratoga Springs.
A woman walking her dogs around 8:15 a.m. Tuesday found Carsky-Bush’s body just off the trail at the unofficial dog park at Route 9 and Crescent Street, state park police said.
State police, park police and the Saratoga County District Attorney’s Office are investigating Carsky-Bush’s death as suspicious at least until they get a cause of death, which could happen today.
They wouldn’t release details about his death or speculate whether foul play was involved.
State Park Police Sgt. Jack Sadousky said he expects to be able to release more information today.
Carsky-Bush was fully clothed and dressed for winter when his body was found along the side of the trail about 1,000 yards into the woods from the parking lot, Sadousky said.
Saratoga County District Attorney James A. Murphy III was called to the scene by investigators. His office referred calls for comment to Sadousky.
Carsky-Bush’s body was taken to Albany Medical Center for the autopsy.
The teen graduated from Saratoga Springs High School in 2007 and lived with his father, Michael Bush, authorities said.
The dog park was closed to the public during Tuesday’s investigation but reopened in the afternoon.
