Pleasanton police say an as-yet unidentified homeless man was found dead Monday afternoon in a sleeping bag near where Hopyard Road crosses over Interstate 580.
The man's body was found by a bicyclist on the Zone 7 property known as the Alamo Canal, not far from Johnson Drive.
The bicyclist called police after finding a deceased male in his late 30s or early 40s in a sleeping bag. A preliminary investigation revealed there were no obvious signs of foul play.
The subject was located in an area that appears to be a homeless encampment. The man who found the body told police he had seen the same subject, alive, about one week ago. The identity of the deceased is not yet known, and the body has been released to the Alameda County Coroner's Office.
Anyone with information that could help in the investigation is asked to contact the Pleasanton Police Department at 931-5100.
