A body was found in a wooded area behind the McDonald's at 411 Barnum Avenue in Stratford on Tuesday afternoon.

Police are investigating the discovery of a body behind a McDonald's in Stratford on Tuesday.
 
"I heard something about body and disturbing so I came back down," said Courtney Christensen, who lives just down the street from this McDonald's.

 
She couldn't believe a crime scene was unfolding in front of her.
 
"It's scary. I walk down here every day with my dog and I'd never think that."
 
Stratford Police say  just before 1 p.m. Tuesday they were called to check out a body found in the woods on West Avenue near Barnum Avenue. Investigators say an unidentified man was found dead in the wooded area behind the dumpster.
 
"I expect bad things to happen but not to this extent," said Steve Keiser of Bridgeport. "Not where kids and people come every day to eat."
 
Police have not identified the man and have not determined the time or cause of death, or if foul play was involved, according to Lt. Frank Eannotti of the Stratford Police Department.
 
Once the Medical Examiner confirms the identity of the body, police will determine a cause of death.
