The body of a man believed to have been in his 30s was found about 2:15 p.m. today in the back yard of a home on Sanford Street in Buffalo’s Fillmore-Leroy neighborhood, according to Michael J. DeGeorge, a spokesman for the Buffalo Police Department.
Sanford is between Fillmore Avenue and Main Street behind Sisters of Charity Hospital.
No information was released about the condition of the body nor how long police believe the body had been in the yard. It was uncertain whether any foul play was involved.
An autopsy is scheduled for Monday morning at the Erie County medical examiner’s office.
