The body of a man in his late 40s was spotted on a hillside along the Mississippi River in St. Cloud, and authorities hope to determine today what caused his death.

The body was discovered by a passerby about 11:30 a.m. Thursday near a walking path by the Best Western Kelly Inn, police said.

"It appeared the male had slid down the embankment and had been lying there for a period of time," Sgt. Jerry Edblad said in a news release.

There were no obvious signs on the body suggesting what killed him, police said. A preliminary cause of death could be released as soon as today by the Ramsey County medical examiner.

Identification was found on the body, and police said they were trying to confirm his identity. However, police added that they do not believe the man was from the St. Cloud area.
