The body of a 23-year-old man was discovered shortly after midnight today on a Box Avenue lawn on Buffalo’s East Side.

Homicide detectives suspect foul play, but are awaiting an autopsy to learn the cause of death, said Michael J. DeGeorge, a city spokesman.

Police were called to the 300 block of Box just before 12:30 a.m., and discovered the body on a lawn near a livery vehicle, DeGeorge said.

Police did not release the victim’s name or any other information related to the case.
