Body Found in Covington Parking Garage

A person was found dead inside a downtown Covington parking garage on Wednesday.

Police responded to the City Center Parking Garage just after 8 a.m. after someone parking a car called 911 to report a possible death.

A man was found lying on the ground of the third floor in the northeast corner of the garage.

Details on what may have preceded or caused the death were not immediately available. Lt. Col. Bryan Carter told The River City News that the man was 50-years old and that no foul play was suspected.

The garage is located directly behind the former Covington City Hall which is currently being renovated to become The Hotel Covington. City employees still use the garage to park their vehicles.
