A woman walking on Hood Franklin Road in the Delta discovered the body of an unidentified man on the side of the road, Sacramento County Sheriff's officials said Saturday.

Sheriff's spokesman Tim Curran said homicide detectives and crime scene investigators were called to the scene near Corky Lane in the town of Hood shortly after 10:30 a.m. Saturday. They found no obvious signs of trauma but are treating the case as suspicious until the county coroner determines a cause of death.

Anyone with information regarding the man's identity or the circumstances surrounding his death is urged to call homicide detectives at (916) 874-5115 or Crime Alert at (916) 443-HELP. Individuals can also send a tip by texting 274637 (CRIMES) and entering SACTIP followed by the information.
