TRAVIS COUNTY -- Authorities believe the decomposed body found in a Northern Travis County field is that of a homeless man, and it appears no foul play was involved.

The Travis County Sheriff's office says the body was found in a field near the 6000 block of West Parmer Lane near McNeil Drive on Tuesday just before 4 p.m.

Investigators say it appears to be a man about 50 years old. They believe he was homeless since there was a camp set up nearby. Authorities are waiting on toxicology reports, but they believe he died of natural causes.

Authorities have not been able to identify the man, but they say he was 5'8" and weighs about 90 pounds. If you have any information you are asked to call the Travis County Sheriff's Office.
