Police: Dead man's neck lodged between posts of iron fence

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — New Orleans police say they're investigating the death of a man found with his neck lodged between posts of an iron fence around a shopping center.

Police say the man was found Thursday morning. The fence is about chest-high with bluntly pointed iron posts a few inches apart.

Officer Garry Flot says the man was a 58-year-old local. He says the coroner will determine the cause of death.
Flot says someone walking by saw the body about 7 a.m. and called police.
