STAUNTON — Staunton police suspect no foul play after a body was found Tuesday morning.

The body was located in the 1500 block of West Beverley shortly before 8 a.m. after the police department received a call, Sgt. Katie Shifflett said.

The body was transported to the medical examiner's office in Roanoke to determine a cause of death. Since no foul play is suspected, officials are withholding the name of the deceased.
