"Body Found At Cemetery"

Besides the obvious, odd appropriateness of the headline, everything about this story is a bit strange.
San Antonio Police said they are investigating the discovery of a body on the city's east side.

Officers said a person found the body at a cemetery in the 1800 block of East Commerce.

Officers said the body is that of an african-american [sic] man between 30 and 35 years old.

At this point investigators are calling it a suspicious death.

They said the victim was found on his left side and had some dried blood on him.

Investigators also said there were no obvious signs of a stabbing or gunshot wound.

My friends drove by the crime scene for this on their way home from Monster Truck Jam! They said the body was leaning up against a tree... do you find that odd?

Absolutely! When I first read the story, I figured the person was laying on his side, which is why the witness thought he was sleeping. But sitting up against a tree just makes the whole thing a little stranger.
