The Portland Police Bureau continues to investigate the circumstances surrounding a man found dead on Northeast Broadway near Interstate 84 last week.
The deceased has been identified as Christopher Allan Tompkins, 59, according to a news release.
Police say the Medical Examiner has not yet determined the cause and manner of Tompkin's death.
"Detectives do not believe there is an immediate danger to the community in relation to this investigation," a spokesperson wrote.
