BROOKHAVEN, Ga. — A day after a man's body was found Wednesday morning along the Peachtree Creek Greenway, police say they have completed their investigation.

The Brookhaven Police Department said it appears the man, Steven Goldman, 65, died as a result of natural causes. Police said based on their investigation, and forensic evidence from by the DeKalb County Medical Examiner's Office, no foul play or criminal activity was suspected.

A cause of death is not being release, police said, citing HIPPA laws.

The investigation began after officers were called around 7:45 a.m. to 1793 Briarwood Road, a construction site for the future public safety building along the greenway, they said.
