The decomposed body of an unidentified male was found Tuesday night in a wooded area in the city's Port Richmond section, police said.

At 8:41 p.m., police were flagged down by a passerby who found the body in the 2200 block of East Westmoreland Street.

Police said decomposition prevented knowing the male's race or age. The cause of death was unknown pending an autopsy. - Robert Moran
