Man Found Dead on Side of Road in Sturgeon Bay

A man was found dead early Tuesday morning on the side of the road in the 100 block of South Lansing Avenue in Sturgeon Bay. The area is on Sturgeon Bay’s west side, between West Maple Street and West Pine Street.

A neighbor viewed the man from a window and called 911 at 6:48 am, according to Sturgeon Bay Police Chief Clint Henry. When police officers arrived at the scene for the dispatch of an unconscious man on the side of the road, they found the middle-aged man deceased. As of the Peninsula Pulse’s deadline, the man had not been identified. 

The autopsy was scheduled for Thursday, Feb. 2. Until then, Henry said they won’t know the cause of death or how long the man had been deceased on the side of the road. 

Though the cause of death remains unknown, Henry said there were no signs of struggle or foul play.

“We’re confident the public is not in any danger,” he said.

The man was fully clothed and dressed for the weather, which had dropped into the single digits overnight Monday.
