Police: Body found in Schenectady ID'd; No sign of trauma

SCHENECTADY -- An autopsy on the body found Friday morning at a boarded-up Moyston Street home showed no signs of trauma, police said Monday.

Police have also identified the man as a local resident and are working to contact next of kin, police spokesman Sgt. Matthew Dearing said.

Investigators are awaiting results of toxicology tests that they hope will shed light on how he died. Those test results could take several weeks to come back, Dearing said.

Police were alerted to the body shortly after 8 a.m. after someone found it at the home. Police have said it appeared the person had been dead for several days.

A resident from across the street said Friday that she's seen drug and prostitution activity there for months.

Police have been called to the address nine times in the last 18 months, Dearing said. Most of the calls were for open doors or windows where a neighbor or passerby believed someone may be inside, he said.
