AUSTIN (KXAN) — The Texas Department of Public Safety says a man’s body was found Monday outside the Texas Workforce Commission building on the State Capitol grounds.

A security guard found the body near the south entrance of the building at 101 E. 15th Street in downtown Austin.

DPS says the call came in at 7:31 a.m. Monday.

The only thing DPS could confirm was that it was a man’s body. It is unclear how old the man is or if it’s a suspicious death. The Travis County Medical Examiner’s Office will conduct an autopsy to determine the cause of death.

The man’s identity won’t be released until his family is notified, DPS said. The Texas Rangers are investigating.
