Body Found in Freezer at SunTrust Park Before Atlanta Braves Game
The unidentified third-party contractor was found dead by a co-worker.
Baseball fans crowded into the stands at SunTrust Park in Atlanta Tuesday, unaware that a body had been found in a cooler at the stadium hours earlier.
The unidentified third-party contractor was found dead by a co-worker, who made the grisly discovery when they entered the walk-in beer cooler, Cobb County police told reporters.
“This is still an active investigation so I am unable to speculate whether or not foul play is a factor," Officer Sarah O’Hara told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
The person’s identity will be released after the contractor's family is notified, authorities said.
The Atlanta Braves, who are assisting with the investigation, took to the field Tuesday to play the Cincinnati Reds as scheduled.
They will play a second game against the team at the stadium Wednesday.
