The body of a homeless man was found Wednesday under the Colorado Street Bridge in Pasadena, according to police. 

There were no signs of foul play or suicide, said Pasadena police Sgt. John Luna.

Police responded at 11 a.m. to a report of a body in the vegetation under the bridge, an area frequented by homeless people, Luna said.

He said the department’s homeless outreach team was familiar with the man, described as white and in his 40s. His name was not released pending notification of next of kin.

An autopsy is pending.
