Some people in the park spotted Philadelphia Police responding to the unidentified man’s body.

Video posted to Instagram before noon, then taken down a short while later, showed officers loading a blue body bag from a taped off area of a park walkway into a waiting police van.

No foul play is suspected and the body was turned over to the city’s medical examiner’s office, said Philadelphia Police.
