The death of a man whose body was found on the Montour Trail in Findlay remains under investigation, Allegheny County Police Lt. Andrew Schurman said on Tuesday.

The body of Jeffrey Black, 43, of Coraopolis, was spotted by a passerby shortly before 10 a.m. Friday under the Summit Park Drive overpass. An autopsy showed that Black died of injuries to the head and trunk.

Schurman said investigators believe Black — described as a white man with dark hair who was wearing a black Steelers T-shirt over a purple button-down shirt and bluejeans — either fell or jumped to his death sometime after 9:20 a.m.

Anyone who was in the vicinity and saw him is asked to call county homicide detectives at 412-473-1300.
