HAYWARD -- A male's body was found dead in the stairwell of his Hayward apartment complex early Thursday morning and police were treating the incident as suspicious.

The victim, whose name and age have not been released pending notification of next of kin, was found shortly after 1:30 a.m. by neighbors who live on the 27000 block of Manon Avenue.

The victim was found laying at the bottom of a stairwell, Sgt. Mark Ormsby said.

He had no visible injuries and no scuffle was heard, Ormsby said.

An autopsy is scheduled for Friday, although it will take up to three months for a toxicology report to be complete.
