SARASOTA - We now know more about the discovery of a dead body near the 10th Street boat ramp earlier this week.

Sarasota Police have released the identity of the man, saying it was 53-year-old Gregory Palchak.

He does not have a known address, and investigators say they do not suspect foul play.

As we first reported Wednesday, landscapers cutting bushes found the man's decomposing body in a drainage ditch along the north side of the parking area.
