The body of an unidentified man was found Friday near the Playboy Mansion in Holmby Hills, a Los Angeles Police Department official said.

Officer Cleon Joseph said he did not have information on exactly where the body was located on the property owned by Playboy magnate Hugh Hefner. But KTLA-TV Channel 5 reported that it was found near a fence the mansion shares with a golf course at the Los Angeles Country Club. 

Foul play is not suspected, Joseph said. LAPD detectives are investigating the death and the Los Angeles County coroner's office will conduct an autopsy to determine how the man died, Joseph said.
