Body found in North Attleboro

A North Attleboro police cruiser guards the vacant lot where the body of a 27-year-old Boston man was found in the late afternoon of June 17, 2013 near the Corliss Landing building on John Dietsch Boulevard in North Attleboro.

NORTH ATTLEBORO — State and local police have worked around the clock investigating the possible homicide of a 27-year-old Boston man and are following up leads, a Sun Chronicle source said this morning.

The victim’s body was found around 5:30 p.m. Monday off John Dietsch Boulevard in the town’s industrial park by a jogger and may have been there for over a day, the source said.

The body was found in a clearing between John Dietsch Boulevard and Landry Avenue and it was unclear whether the victim died where he was found or whether his body was dumped there, the source said.

Meanwhile, police have found a 2013 Chevrolet Suburban with Rhode Island license plates in connection with the possible homicide. The vehicle is registered to Enterprise car rental and investigators were hoping to analyze it for fingerprints.

Local police declined comment and referred calls to the Bristol County District Attorney’s office.

“As the investigation is in its early stages, no further details about this case will be released at this time,” the district attorney’s office said late Monday night.

The probe is being conducted by state police detectives with the district attorney’s office, local police and state police crime scene experts.

The last homicide in North Attleboro was in November 2009 when the body of a suspected drug mule who entered the country from Mexico was found rolled up in a carpet at a housing development under construction off Freeman Street. No arrests have been made in connection with the incident.

The last murder in the Sun Chronicle readership area was July 10, 2011 in Attleboro at a sober house on Dunham Street.

In that case, Matthew Gumkowski of West Warwick, R.I., is accused of strangling and stabbing 50-year-old Joseph Kilrow before setting fire to Kilrow’s third-floor room in an attempt to cover up the crime. Gumkowski was arrested a few days later and is awaiting trial in Fall River Superior Court.
