The body of a 54-year-old man was found behind the Sixth Avenue garage on Wednesday.

Police are investigating the circumstances surrounding the death of a McKeesport man whose body was discovered on Wednesday morning behind a city parking garage.

William Bouvy, 54, was found face down on the pavement between the Sixth Avenue garage and a commercial building in the 200 block of Fifth Avenue.

First responders declared him dead at the scene.

McKeesport and Allegheny County police and the county Medical Examiner's office were called.

McKeesport police Capt. Tim Hanna said investigators are treating the death as a suspicious incident but they do not believe it was the result of criminal activity.

The medical examiner is expected to perform an autopsy on Thursday.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
