CLINTON — A man’s body was found on the side of the road Saturday, though the death does not appear to be suspicious, police said.

Clinton police and fire-rescue responded to a call reporting a man down on the side of Silver Street shortly after 6 a.m. Saturday, the Clinton Police Department said in a news release posted to its Facebook page Saturday. Police found the man had died.

The body was transported to the state Office of Chief Medical Examiner in Augusta for an autopsy, though police do not suspect foul play and do not believe there is a threat to the public.

The name of the man will not be released, the Police Department said Saturday.

Clinton police did not immediately return a request for more information Monday afternoon.
