LYNN (CBS) -- The body found in Frey Park in Lynn has been identified as a 29-year-old man, the Essex County District Attorney's office says.

The D.A. said the death is considered suspicious and remains under investigation.

"It's very unsettling because there are a lot of kids in this park and you just don't know what to think," one neighbor said.

Editor's Note: The Essex County District Attorney's office now says the victim's age was 29, not 19 as previously reported.
