Man found dead in Rhawnhurst street

An unidentified man was found unresponsive early Saturday morning in the middle of a Rhawnhurst street.

Though reports are conflicting (listing the man’s age as early 20s and early 40s), police said the man was found on the 1700-block of Bleigh Avenue around 4 a.m. Saturday. He had suffered trauma to his head and body, but the cause of death is still under investigation.

Those who think they may have information surrounding the incident are urged to call the police department’s homicide division at 215-686-3334 or 3335.
