The Littleton Police do not believe there was any foul play or criminal activity, spokesperson Sheera Poelman said.
Littleton Code Compliance workers found the body on Tuesday morning while they were conducting a cleanup at the camp, Poelman said. They called the police around 11 a.m., she said.
Littleton Code Compliance, part of the Community Development Department, is responsible for investigating complaints and addressing code violations, according to the city’s website. A homeless camp cleanup involves contacting individuals to move their belongings, giving them notice before the cleanup and removing items from the area for individuals to pick up from a safe location, Poelman said.
When the police arrived on scene, they secured the scene and examined it for evidence of a criminal cause of death, Poelman said.
Officials transported the body to the coroner, where an official cause of death will be determined.
