Monroe County Coroner Bob Allen told the Pocono Record the body was discovered shortly before 11 a.m. Monday near the former Birchwood Resort in Pocono Township, about 300 yards from the road.

The body was that of a white man in his late 50s or early 60s, balding with a trim white beard and weighing roughly 170 pounds.

The coroner said no ID was found on the body but a comforter and other items found suggest the man may have been sleeping in the woods.

An autopsy will be performed Tuesday or Wednesday.
