Body found in Topsfield woods not considered suspicious

TOPSFIELD — Police Chief Evan Haglund said there are no suspicious circumstances surrounding a body found in the woods off Ipswich Road on Tuesday.

Haglund said the incident is being considered a medical response call.

Investigators from the Essex County district attorney’s office responded Tuesday afternoon. The deceased was a man who had been out hunting.

It’s protocol for the district attorney’s office to respond to any unattended death, said Carrie Kimball Monahan, spokeswoman for Essex County District Attorney Jonathan Blodgett.

“It was a medical issue; there is no criminal investigation,” she said.
