West Hartford Police released some details regarding an incident Saturday night that continues to be a very active investigation and which involved a large emergency response that shut down the roadway on Oakwood Avenue at Park Road.

According to Sgt. Amanda Martin, police were called to the area of 9 Oakwood Ave. – which is a small strip shopping center – “in regards to locating a vehicle.”

Martin was unable to provide details about the nature of the call.

When officers arrived, she said, they discovered a parked car with a “deceased male located inside.” No description of the man was given, nor any indication of how long he may have been there, but she did note that there were no obvious signs of trauma.

The West Hartford Police Detective Division is actively investigating, Martin said.

She said the incident appears to be isolated and police said there is no threat to the public at this time.
