Man Found Dead in Torrington

NBC Connecticut

Torrington police are investigating the death of a man whose body was found near the Coe Park Civic Center Friday.

Police said the man was spotted by someone trying to get cover from the wind around 1:30 p.m. He was pronounced dead on scene.

He has been identified as 57-year-old Rodney Hoyle of New Milford.

The Connecticut State Police Western District Major Crime unit was called in to assist with the investigation.

While police are not calling the death suspicious, investigators said Hoyle had injuries that don't seem consistent with an untimely death, such as death from the cold. Police said the injuries do not appear to be stab wounds, gunshots, or anything of that nature, but rather "consistent with contact with ground."

Anyone who may have seen Hoyle in the area is asked to contact the Torrington Police Department at 860-489-2090.

No other details were immediately available.
