Man Found Dead in Tent on Delaware Festival Grounds

A man has been found dead in his tent at Playa del Fuego, Delaware's version of Burning Man in Townsend.

Delaware State Police Master Cpl. Jeffrey Hale tells the News Journal of Wilmington that the 62-year-old man's body was found at about 4 p.m. Monday at festival grounds. Local police responded to the scene.

Hale says no foul play is suspected. The state Division of Forensic Science will conduct an autopsy and toxicology screening.

Police haven't released the man's name or other details.

The Playa del Fuego Board of Directors posted about the death Monday, calling it a "tragic loss" to their community.

Police continue to investigate.
