UPDATE: According to the Connecticut State Police, a worker discovered the body of 63-year-old Herbert Ruehle  of Carmel, New York just after 11:00 AM Thursday. Investigators note that at this time, there is no evidence of foul play.


Local and state police are on the scene, as a dead man's body has been reportedly found in Danbury.

According to initial reports from the News Times, the investigation is taking place right along the exit 4 ramps where Interstate 84 meets Lake Avenue. The report says that the body is believed to have been discovered in the grassy area off of the side of the ramps, within very short proximity to the area's prominent restaurants, retail stores and more.

While it is reported that members of the Danbury Police Department are at the site assisting with the investigation, it is likely that the location of where the body was found will result in the reigns being handed over to the Connecticut State Police.

The identity of the deceased man has not yet been made public.
