UPDATE: After conducting an autopsy, Edmonton police said the death was determined to be non-criminal.
Edmonton police closed the southbound lanes of 50 Street between Manning Drive and 137 Avenue Thursday morning.
The traffic closure was due to a suspicious death investigation, an EPS spokesperson said.
A tarp could be seen set up on an overpass, where several police officers were gathered.
Investigators were also seen going in and out of a house on 139 Avenue.
EPS later said officers were called to the area when an unresponsive male was found on the sidewalk. He was pronounced dead at the scene by EMS.
The homicide unit is investigating. An autopsy has not yet been scheduled.
Police reopened 50 Street shortly after 4 p.m.
Police are asking anyone who was in the area of 50 Street above the LRT tracks between 7:45 a.m. and 9:45 a.m. and saw something to contact police.
