BRADENTON, Fla- The Manatee County Sheriff's Office is investigating a suspicious death in Bradenton.  Authorities say a dead body was found behind the Books-A-Million at 4225 14th Street West. 

Investigators believe the man died quite some time ago.  Sgt. Rod Taylor says a homeless man on a bicycle saw the decedent at about 3 PM Sunday afternoon, believing that he was sleeping.  The same man was riding his bike by the location at 6 PM Monday evening, and realized the decedent was dead.

Deputies are still investigating a cause of death, but if you have any information you're asked to call the Manatee County Sheriff's Office.
