LAKE PLACID - State police are investigating the death of a man in the Marcy Dam area of the High Peaks Wilderness.
The man was found Tuesday, and the investigation is in its preliminary stages, state police spokeswoman Jennifer Fleishman said this morning.
"We are not releasing any information about that right now," Fleishman said.
Fleishman said state police would provide information through a press release at the appropriate time.
State police investigators and a coroner were seen at the Lake Placid Airport on Tuesday. A state police helicopter was seen making trips to and from the airport.
State Department of Environmental Conservation spokesman Dave Winchell also said he could not provide any information on the case and referred the incident to the state police since it was "an unattended death on state land."
