Must Read

A man was found dead Saturday night behind a Framingham, Massachusetts, business where he worked at a popular shopping plaza, authorities said.

Framingham police officers were called to a Shoppers World business on Worcester Road about 10 p.m., where they found a man dead in the trash area behind the building, Middlesex District Attorney Marian Ryan and Framingham Chief of Police Lester said Sunday.

The man had obvious trauma to his body, according to authorities. He was a 30-year-old from Framingham who worked at the business and was working that night.

The man’s name wasn’t given, nor was the address where he worked. His cause of death was set to be determined by the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner, officials said. The case is being investigated as an apparent homicide.

The area where the man was found is a very busy, very public area, and people said they were stunned to learn Sunday what had happened.

“Pure shock,” said Smit Patel, who was visiting a panini shop right next to where the man was found. “I’m only here for a sandwich and then finding out that a homicide happened right maybe 100 feet from me is insane.”

“Just hearing about something like this in a place that’s very busy, that’s unfathomable,” Patel added.

Framingham resident Lisa Goulding said the news made her feel nervous.

“You never hear anything like this in Framingham happening too often,” she said.

No arrests have been announced.

Anyone who may have noticed anything suspicious in the area or who has information about the incident, which remained under investigation Sunday, was urged to call 508-532-5923.
