Man Dies After Being Found Unconscious In Downtown Boston

BOSTON (CBS) – Boston police are investigating the death of a man in his twenties in downtown.

Officers found the victim in the area of Franklin and Broad Streets Saturday around 2:15 a.m.

He was unconscious and appeared to be suffering from a head injury.

That victim later died at Mass General Hospital.

Police have not identified the victim and they are not sure how he died, though they suspect foul play.

Tony O’Brien, who works in the area, isn’t surprised an altercation may be involved.

“There’s a lot of hot heads out here. So the fights, they happen every weekend,” he said. “This fight – whatever happened – it just went way too far.”

Police are asking anyone with information to contact them.
